T.note n.78 - HS series #12

May 6, 2019 T.notes William Brame, Giuseppe Lettieri Violence & Security

Whither EU–Russia Relations?
T.note n.77 - HS series #11

Apr 8, 2019 T.notes Irina Busygina Violence & Security

Today, relations between Russia and the European Union are in a deep and protracted crisis: what started as a project of high hopes, ambitions and enthusiasm in the early 1990s is now associated with deep disappointment, despite the geographical proximity and economic interdependence that arguably compel both sides to cooperate. Why has the relationship between Russia and the EU deteriorated so quickly and seemingly irreversibly – at least in the short and medium term?
