Closing Event of the Trilateral Peace Talks 2015 in Berlin

Posted by Johannes Klein in EU & EuropeRussia & CIS

From May 1st – May 5th IFAIR gathered 30 motivated students, professionals and experts from Ukraine, Russia and Germany to discuss origins, media coverage and possible solutions to the current crisis in Ukraine within the framework of various symposia and workshops. Together with the Kiev-based Center for Democratic Renaissance, the Youth Diplomatic Initiative and the Moscow Institute of World Economy and International Relations, we intended to explore common grounds and to make a positive contribution to constructive dialogue by initiating inter-societal relationship between participants of the conference.

On Monday 4th of May, at the conference’s closing event the common findings were presented to the public, followed by a productive and open discussion. The participants proved that through interpersonal communication and exchange of different points of view eventually a great deal of consensus can be reached.

We would like to thank all partners and sponsors and especially our great participants for their work towards the creation of mutual understanding.

Online Workshops of the 2nd Interregional EU-ASEAN Perspectives Dialogue started

Posted by Theresa Lieb in Interne News

On Saturday, IFAIR started the discussions regarding cooperations between the EU and ASEAN in four selected policy fields of interregional cooperation: development, the international financial architecture, trade and climate change.

In the following weeks, the 10 ASEAN and 10 European participants of each workshop group, that come from 13 different countries, will discuss their topic. The workshops are guided by our IFAIR moderators and expert advisors to help the participants elaborate insights and ideas that will be published in a paper and presented at our EU-ASEAN conference in Brussels taking place in June.

We hope that the following discussions will be just as interesting and productive as the kick-off meeting on Saturday and look forward to the results!
