Two Years after Euromaidan: Success and Failures

We are pleased to invite you to the international conference Two Years after Euromaidan: Success and Failures held under the auspices of Karel Schwarzenberg, Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic, which will take place on Monday, December 7, 2015, 10:00 – 15:00, in the premises of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic.

The event is organized by the Association for International Affairs (AMO) in cooperation with the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung in Prague, the U.S. Embassy Prague and the Representation of the European Commission in the Czech Republic.

The purpose of the conference is to commemorate the two year anniversary of the Euromaidan but at the same time to discuss European perspective of Ukraine and, more broadly, the future of the Eastern Partnership and EU-Russia relations as well. Since the signing of Minsk II accords and the breakout of the refugee crisis, Europe is gradually losing interest in Ukraine. Though, the country is still under huge military pressure from Russia. Moreover, it is trying to push through needed socio-economic reforms while simultaneously implementing far-reaching administrative, institutional and constitutional amendments stipulated in Minsk accords which are to be fully implemented by the end of year. At the same time, Ukraine has not stepped down from its objective to become a member of Euro-Atlantic integration structures. The stability and prosperity of Ukraine are also crucial for upholding secure EU’s neighbourhood.

We are glad that many distinguished guests have confirmed their participation in the conference including MEP Rebecca Harms, former Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs Radosław Sikorski, the founder and president of the Project on Transitional Democracies Bruce Jackson, the founder of Stopfake Yevhen Fedchenko and the former European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy Štefan Füle.

The event will be held in English.

Those wishing to attend are kindly requested to confirm via this simple registration form.

We look forward to seeing you!
