The first Ghent-Russia colloquium will focus on the evolution of EU-Russia relations in various disciplines.

The EU Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy, adopted in June 2016, defined the relationship between the European Union and Russia as 'a key strategic challenge'. On the one hand, the conflict in Ukraine and the enuing introduction of restrictive measures disrupt the potential for cooperation. On the other hand, the EU and Russia are largely interdependent in many areas. For this purpose, 'selective engagement' over matters of common interest such as energy, environment, education, research and cross-border cooperation remains on the agenda.
The purpose of the first Ghent colloquium is to bring together scholars and practitioners working in various disciplines to present their research on the evolution of EU-Russia relations.
