“70 Years of the IDM – Locating the Future”
More than a year has passed since the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation. While Ukraine is bravely defending itself against Russian aggression, the country must at the same time initiate reforms and economic and political transformations in order to go through the EU integration process. What is the potential of regional cooperation and macro regional strategies like the EUSDR to support Ukraine’s EU integration? And how can we keep up solidarity and foster an understanding of the broader European public for Ukraine?
With these questions in mind and in the framework of our “70 years of IDM”-activities, the Institute of the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM) is happy to partner up with the Ukrainian Institue for International Politics (UIIP) to host a hybrid event in Kyiv. It has become clear that we cannot talk about the future of the Danube region without securing the future of Ukraine first. Under the general topic of “Locating the future”, we will therefore also discuss the future security architecture in Europe and the role of Ukraine.
