We are pleased to host a research seminar, “Troubled Neighbourhood: Reassessing Key-Concepts of EU Common Foreign and Security Policy,” with Prof. Ilkka Liikanen, University of Eastern Finland.
About the Seminar: As the cornerstone of building the EU’s international role, European Neighbourhood Policies have been merited with highly positive self-esteem and scholarly assessments. The European Union has been referred to as a new kind of international actor, a peace project and the force for good in the world. When the EU received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2012, these images were seen as the highest international recognition. Today after the Ukraine crisis, we find in more than one sense a troubled neighbourhood, and there is an obvious need to reassess the key-concepts of EU policies of external relations.
About the Speaker: Prof. Ilkka Liikanen teaches Border and Russian Studies, at the Karelian Institute, University of Eastern Finland and he is a lead researcher for the GLASE research project (Multilayered Borders of Global Security). Currently, he is a visiting scholar at Carleton University with the Borders in Globalization Project.
This event is co-sponsored with Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (EURUS), Centre for European Studies Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence and Borders in Globalization Project, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies. Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence events are co-funded by a grant from the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
