After the presidential election, many observers question themselves about the political future of Ukraine on both domestic and international fronts. Ukraine is, and will remain, an important element of the European policy. Hence, the transformations it is undergoing will be of great significance for Europe. The European integration encompassed the whole continent although it often took different forms and followed different scenarios. What the European Union offers Ukraine is not, at this stage, a membership, but an attempt to bring Ukraine closer to the European standards. From the Ukrainian point of view, however, such an offer is insufficient. Moreover, there are other integration processes beyond the European Union, which imply significant geopolitical changes in the CEE region. These will unquestionably have an impact on the regional economy and the regional security system. It is certainly worthy to analyse the challenges that Europe and Ukraine are facing.
These and many other key issues, which are crucial for the future of Ukraine and Europe will become the subjects of the 4th Forum Ukraine-Europe. The leading politicians, businessmen, experts and journalists interested in this field will take part in the conference.
Government officials and political leaders, representatives of business, local governments, and international organizations, leading analysts and academics. Approximately 200 participants from Ukraine and 200 from the EU, NIS and US are expected.
Ukrainian, English, Russian
