Event description

Description

In recent years, Russia has been aggressively promoting the Eurasian Economic Union, a regional trade bloc comprising several former Soviet states across Eastern Europe and Central Asia. As the region’s economies become increasingly intertwined, questions are arising about Russia’s ultimate goal for the EAEU. In this unique collaboration between the Wall Street Journal and Foreign Affairs, we will explore the EAEU’s economic and political effects in the region and consider how Russia is using its economic heft and the power of trade to further its geopolitical agenda, as doubts grow about the strength and durability of the liberal international order and the Western-led system of global free trade.
