(CEPS; Book Chapter) This paper applies the concepts of hegemony and hybridity as analytical tools to help understand the structural changes taking place within the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries and beyond. The author points to the split identities of many post-Soviet societies and the growing appeal of solutions aimed at balancing Russia’s or the EU’s dominance as important factors shaping EaP dynamics. Against this background, he explores how the...

(Geopolitics) The existing academic literature is replete with discussions about complex interconnections between borders and identities (Kuusisto-Arponen and Gilmartin 2015; Makarychev 2017). Borders are viewed as producers of texts and discourses, and are discussed as social constructs that always include and exclude (Blake 2014), as well as securitize and de-securitize, centralize and marginalize. To underline dynamic nature of borders, critical...

Спортивные мегасобытия в политической науке принято рассматривать как инструменты достижения конкретных целей политическими режимами. Выгоды от таких событий носят, прежде всего, политический – а не финансовый –...

(International Spectator) The contours of regionalism in a wider Europe are shaped by two dominant actors, the European Union (EU) and Russia, which often have divergent visions of the regional landscapes in a vast area constituting their common neighbourhood. The EU can be characterised as the promoter of normative regionalism, while Russia generates different forms of civilisational regionalism. Russia’s emphasis on the civilisational underpinnings of...

Of particular salience are relations between ROC and GOC, on the one hand, and the Roman Catholic Church, on the other, as well as the positioning of both ROC and GOC...

Many in Europe continue to think that certain people or groups within the Russian ruling regime are eager to cooperate and have an understanding of the dangers of the current escalated tensions. Logically, this belief creates a demand for Russian interlocutors who represent the Russian elites (or at least Russian opinion makers) who are potentially open to dialogue with Europeans despite the crisis in relations. In turn, this demand creates supply, and...
