The Hertie School of Governance and the U.S. Embassy in Germany cordially invite you to a panel and discussion held with the occasion of the launch of the Special Report edited by Dr Cristian Nitoiu.
The feeling that we are experiencing the emergence of a New ‘Cold War’ is increasingly creeping into European and Russian discourse. This report provides a series of clear policy recommendations on how to move from a deeply confrontational mind-set to a more cooperative one. Authors explore the origins and impact of the Ukraine crisis, from competition between the European Neighbourhood Policy and Eurasian Economic Union to the impact of economic sanctions.


Andrei Kazantsev is Director of the Analytical Centre of Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO-University). Previously he was Jean Monnet Fellow in European University Institute (Italy, Florence) and Fellow in the George C. Marshall European Centre for Security Studies (Germany, Garmisch-Panterkirchen).

Alexander Libman is researcher in the Eastern Europe and Eurasia research division of the German Institute for International and Security Affairs. Prior to this position he was Assistant Professor of International Political Economy at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.

Cristian Nitoiu is Dahrendorf Postdoctoral Fellow in EU-Russia relations and Ukraine at LSE IDEAS. Before coming to LSE he held research positions at Trinity College Dublin and the College of Europe (Natolin campus, ENP Chair).
