EU Policy Approaches to Russia After the WTO Accession

January 23 2014
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Erik van der Marel, Iana Dreyer, Vincent Degert
Time: 12:45

One year after its WTO accession, Russia is becoming increasingly integrated in the world economy. Although Russia’s economy, and especially its export, is still dependent on natural resources, WTO accession has helped Russia to diversify its production and trade profile. Yet the quality of Russia’s institutions for governance is still weak and slows down the reform of the economy. Moreover, weak institutional quality hinders Russia from moving into sectors where it has comparative advantage – and it generally promotes a foreign economic policy that sometimes conflicts with rules and norms of international cooperation.

What should be the EU strategy towards Russia? You are cordially invited to a lunch seminar about Russia’s economic development and the EU’s policies regarding Russia. At this seminar, we will discuss what has been the EU’s economic, political or strategic policy approaches to Russia in recent years and what role there is for an EU foreign economic policy with regard to Russia.

The seminar will have presentations by Erik van der Marel, Senior Economist at ECIPE, Iana Dreyer, former Trade Policy Analyst at ECIPE and currently Associate Fellow at the European Union Institute for Security Studies in Paris, and Vincent Degert, Head of Russia Division at the European External Action Service.

A sandwich lunch will be served before the seminar
