Once a year the UC organizes a conference which provides important opportunities for exposure, immersion, and dialogue among scholars, experts, officials and students.
The UC invites scholars, think-tank experts and officials (former and current) to discuss current trends and problems in Russia-West relations and identify potential policy prescriptions. Groups of UC Fellows are invited to the UC’s Annual Conference and are encouraged to network and participate actively in all conference discussions. Our conferences provide fresh opportunities for multilateral thinking about old problems and highlight the intellectual and affective benefits of inter-regional, inter-national and inter-generational discussions. Not least, these senior-driven meetings set the example for constructive, but honest, dialogue for the younger generations in the audience.
As the situation in Russia-Western relations worsens, the UC becomes an increasingly important platform for such meetings and conversations even for our senior network members.
