The war in Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea resulted in deep crisis in relations between the Russian Federation and the countries of the transatlantic community. The Visegrad countries and Germany as members of this community face a number of dilemmas regarding the future EU’s policy towards its eastern neighbours, peace in and consolidation of Ukraine and new nature of relations with Russia. The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung commissioned the report “Europe and the East in 2030” based on three workshops in which a group of experts identified the driving forces that shape the relationship and discussed four possible future trajectories for the EU's relationship with its eastern neighbours. The expert workshop hosted by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and the Institute of International Relations will present the four scenarios and discuss what policy options Visegrad states, Germany and their European partners should consider to define their common interests and shape the EU's future policy in order to make the positive scenarios more likely.
