Training schedule and additional information
The course is organised into five issue specific modules, which discuss such topics as historical and institutional framework of EU-Russia relations; EU and Russia's relevant foreign policy actors and institutions; as well as contested areas of EU and Russia's interactions in shared neighbourhood and energy relations.
The course provides students with both theoretical knowledge (which is delivered through explanatory audio podcasts, video round-table discussions and academic commentary) and guest interviews from various practitioners coming from HEIs, NGOs and EU institutions such as members of the European Parliament, representatives of the Union of European Federalists, Estonia-Russia CBC programme and Barents Euro-Arctic Cooperation. At the end of the course, students will also be able to apply their acquired knowledge in practice through completing a short mini-project, focused on media analysis of sources dealing with the state of EU-Russia affairs.
