EU and Eurasian Union: A Single or Two Different Europes?
Group #1

Room: Toskana 1&2 (1st Floor)

After overcoming the Ukrainian crisis, the EU and Russia must find a way to negotiate a free-trade zone that reaches from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Russia may not be isolated from Europe. If Russia reached out towards Europe again, countries positioned "in between", such as Ukraine, would no longer be put to the "either/or" test. The idea of a common space could contribute to taking the dialogue between Europe and Russia well beyond the economic aspect and to establishing a discussion about a future common security architecture in Europe. Based on its experience with "Ostpolitik" towards Russia, Germany is predestined within the EU to initiate a reflection on cooperation between the EU and the Eurasian Union. The concept may be in competition to the idea of the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership). In the end, however, a stable Europe depends on the collaboration with both Russia and the US.
