The Annual Meeting of the University Consortium took place from the 30th of September to the 1st of October at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. The consortium consists of the following members: St Antony’s College at University of Oxford, The Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University, The Harriman Institute at Columbia University, Freie Universität Berlin, Moscow State Institute for International Relations (MGIMO) and the National Research University - Higher School of Economics (HSE). It is funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Participants from the six partner Universities, high ranking officials and former ambassadors were present as well as students which presented their papers during the student webinar. Topics discussed during the meeting were among others the impact of Brexit on Western-Russian relations as well as the narratives underlying these currently very tense relations. Although important topics have been on the agenda, many issues in current relations have unfortunately only marginally - or not at all - been addressed, e.g. the Russian role in the Syrian war, the MH17 panel, or the current situation in eastern Ukraine, among others.
The department of Political Science of the Osteuropa-Institut will organize the next University Consortium Module at FU Berlin from the 21st to the 25th of November. The title of this Module is "European Challenges and The Future of the EU: The East-European Dimension". This is expected to provide a different focus compared to previous events of the Consortium.
To apply for the Module, please hand in a short CV (not more than 2 pages) as well as a one-page letter of application, in which it is indicated why you would like to participate and how your current work can be integrated into the UC Module. Please send your documents as a pdf to Cosima Glahn (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Students are invited to submit their applications until October, 14th.
