Threats to Democracy and Security in Moldova and Ukraine
(Monday, November 20, 2017)
|Meeting type:||Public Meeting|
|Date:||Monday, November 20, 2017|
|Time:||6.30pm - 9.00pm|
The northern countries of the European Neighbourhood i.e. Moldova, Ukraine (and Belarus) have all had more than their fair share of turmoil recently. Threats from increased corruption, from poor rule of law, from Russian interference, from the emigration of young talent and, often, from ineffective European Union support have all played their part in the lack of stability. Yet each country is at a different stage in its post-Soviet development. This event will focus on how serious the threats are and on what can be achieved in the region by the EU. It takes place four days before the next Eastern Partnership summit in Brussels. Speakers: Hans van Baalen MEP, president of ALDE and Liberal International president of honour 'Threats to Democracy and Security in Moldova' Dr Carol Weaver, Liberal International (BG) executive member and academic author 'Threats to Democracy and Security in Ukraine'
Cristina Gherasimov, Chatham House Russia Eurasia Programme. 'How the EU can help to improve democracy in the region.'
Chair: Dr Phil Bennion, chair of Liberal International (BG) and former MEP
