Friday, 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., Room: Collegium Polonicum CP 154

The course analyses and discusses developments and problems in the EU-Russian relationship over the last years since the signing of the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) in 1997. The seminar is scrutinising the political and legal basis for EU-Russia cooperation, and it looks into particular fields of EU and EU-member-state’s cooperation with Russia. The discussion will focus on strengths and weaknesses, on challenges and opportunities in the EU-Russia relations. Due attention will be given to such contentious issues as negotiating a new PCA, security and energy supply, assessing the human rights situation in Russia. The seminar will highlight the role of the EU-enlargement process and the EU-neighbourhood policy for European cooperation with Russia.
