Article: Bridging a (mis)perceptional gap: the EU's Eastern Partnership and Russian Policies in the Trans-Caucasus

by Alexander Sergunin

The launch of the EU’s Eastern Partnership in 2009 has puzzled both Russian decision-makers and experts. To the date they cannot arrive to any specific con-clusion: whether this project is another geopolitical challenge to Russia’s domi-nation in the post-Soviet space or a potential platform for cooperation both with the EU and countries of the region? The author believes that regardless numerous misunderstandings and misperceptions there is a ‘window of opportunity’ for the EU, Russia and Trans-Caucasian countries to develop a joint cooperative strategy.
