Online-Panel Dis­cus­sion on October 6, 2020, with Gunther Krich­baum, Johannes Schraps, Renata Alt, Manuel Sar­razin und others.

The Eastern Part­ner­ship Summit in March 2021 will herald a new decade of the Eastern Part­ner­ship. The expec­ta­tions of the three asso­ci­ated coun­tries, Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova, are cor­re­spond­ingly high. We would like to discuss with you the current status and per­spec­tives for the Eastern Partnership.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of civil society from the three asso­ci­ated coun­tries have dis­cussed their views on the neces­si­ties for the Eastern Part­ner­ship together with the Center for Liberal Moder­nity and framed rec­om­men­da­tions for action for the coming years in three strat­egy papers. During the con­fer­ence, the strat­egy papers will be pre­sented and the per­spec­tives of civil society in the asso­ci­ated coun­tries will be reflected upon.

In the second part of the con­fer­ence we wish to discuss the theses pre­sented with members of the German Bundestag.

Reg­is­tra­tion

The dis­cus­sion will be live-streamed via Zoom with simul­ta­ne­ous trans­la­tion (English-German). Please reg­is­ter under the fol­low­ing link https://bit.ly/2ExZ7gx
