On 28 November 2022, Project Team Dr. Anne Pintsch and Dr. Maryna Rabinovych gave a guest lecture “EU, Ukraine and the Eastern Partnership in War and Post-War Times: Quo Vadis?” at the University of Oslo. The event was hosted at the Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages.

The first part of the lecture focused on the presentation of the “Lowering the Bar?” project and an insight into the role of compliance negotiations in the implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement.

In the second part, the talk zoomed in on the European Union’s response to Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The Project Team highlighted, inter alia, the role of pre-war EU-Ukraine networks in the EU’s strong response to Russia’s aggression.

In the third part, the presenters elaborated on the challenges of shaping EU future policies to a highly heterogenous and conflict-prone Eastern Partnership region (i.e. Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Belarus).

The lecture was followed by a Q&A session with many intellectually challenging questions from the audience.

A more detailed description of the event is available at the website of the University of Oslo.
