Given the current state of the EU-Russia relations, few channels of communication remain as effective and fruit bearing as earlier. This leaves both Russia and Europe in need of boosting their efforts to work out a new formula or mode of relations.

In these circumstances, second-track diplomacy remains the most viable and inherently positive channel of developing and exchanging ideas, clarifying positions and building trust among the nations. Most recently, prominent scholars from Russia and various European countries were brought together to produce the Rutledge Handbook of EU-Russia Relations, skillfully edited by Tatiana Romanova and Maxine David thereupon.

A collection of insightful articles, the Handbook has already drawn the attention of broader audience and will for sure continue to do so in the near future. Still, it is vital to transmit the ideas and suggestions, developed by the academia, to the practitioners, responsible for real-life actions. With this in mind, on December 6, 2021 the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) and the EU-Russia Experts Network (EUREN) are holding a round table “EU-Russia Relations: Engaging Policy Makers with the Academia”.

The roundtable will be divided into three sessions dealing with theoretical aspects of policy-making, spheres of possible constructive engagement of Moscow and Brussels and regions of mutual concern. The rather unusual for both RIAC and EUREN format of the event is expected to stimulate a dynamic and fruitful dialogue.
