Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The main point of departure for this observational material is represented by a desire to test the following hypothesis: in order to be theoretically solid, structurally stable and operationally viable, the special case of the EU-Ukraine integration needs to portray a synergised two-way traffic. Arguably, the duo is currently facing a range of certain challenges, and many of those are common for the two partners. In such a context, paradoxically, it is where this material makes a call on detecting a proper framework for the EU and Ukraine to synergise their integration-focused positive intentions, should they keep communicating with each other in geo-strategic terms of partnership. In many respects, as detected in this report, an enhanced all-round integration between the EU and Ukraine not only exemplifies a basic function of statecraft, but it can also be a matter of survival for both.
