Deadline for registering: Jul 31, 2015
Venue: Goethe-Institut Prague, Czech Republic, Czech Republic
Category: Workshop

As a part of its long-term project Visegrad Platform for Dialogue on Democracy, Human Right, and Civil Society Forum 2000 organizes a student seminar during this year’s annual conference titled “Transitions to Democracy: Ukraine and Beyond.” This seminar intends to provide students with a unique experience of drafting a joint V4 policy paper focused on providing democracy assistance in Ukraine. As the events in Ukraine led to a change of political and economic relations, as well as security issues in the region, the V4 governments need to take a nuanced but active approach in supporting democratic initiatives in the country, for their engagement could play a vital role in consolidating a democratic political system. Stability and good governance in Ukraine remains a goal of the V4 governments – not only because of Ukraine’s proximity to the Visegrad region, but also due to historical and cultural ties. Yet the Visegrad states have not found much common ground in providing a unanimous reply to the ongoing developments and to Russia’s involvement in the crisis.

The seminar has two key components: a series of meetings with experts from/on the region accompanied by Q&A sessions, and a series of workshops with a tutor that will take place over a 3 day period at the 19th Forum 2000 Conference. It will aim to formulate a joint policy paper that will approach Ukraine as a case study for V4’s democracy assistance in the Eastern Partnership with focus on foreign policy, civil society, media, economy, and security. In between the sessions, the seminar participants will attend conference panels thematically linked to the seminar. For more information please visit the project’s website.
