Russia and Europe: new neighbours defining a new neighbourhood
Speaker(s): Jean Lemierre
Chair: Jean Lemierre
Recorded on 22 January 2008 in Old Theatre, Old Building.
Russia, Ukraine and the other countries of the former Soviet Union now share a common border with the European Union that both divides and unites. Strong relations between the neighbours will increasingly be defined by trade, and even more by investment in both directions. The challenge is for economic relations to reinforce political relationships that will help both neighbours thrive in a globalised world.
