Public Round Table “Power and the politico-strategic management of diversity by Russia and the EU”

 

This roundtable gathers international scholars dealing with the EU-Russia relations involved in the Jean Monnet Network BEAR (Between the EU and Russia). The discussion focuses on the politico-strategic management of diversity by Russia and the EU regarding the contested areas as well as application of specific instruments of power (soft power, hybrid power, power of attraction). This roundtable main questions are the following: 

  • How do the EU and Russia affect intra-state policies of minority inclusion/exclusion?
  • How do the politics surrounding ethnically/linguistically identified de facto states (e.g., Transnistria) and similar territories of contested sovereignty (e.g., Donbas, Crimea) affect the EU integration process?
  • How do states in the region instrumentalize/securitize minority issues?
  • What are the power instruments the EU and Russia apply in the domains of contestation?

 

Partcipants: Eiki Berg (University of Tartu), Adrian Florea (University of Glasgow), Karol-Chwedczuk-Szulc (University of Wroclaw), Oxana Shevel (University of Tufts), David Smith: (University of Glasgow) 

 

Moderation: I.P. Karolewski (Willy Brandt Center for German and European Studies, University of Wroclaw)
