After the so-called U-turn in Armenian foreign policy, the knowledge about possible consequences of the accession to Eurasian Customs Union also with respect to EU-Armenian relations is very low. Therefore the project “Armenia in Between EU and Eurasian Union”, that was implemented in cooperation with Yerevan Press Club, aimed at raising awareness on integration processes. In five round table discussions and three seminars experts from different spheres have analyzed the possible consequences of Armenia’s accession to Eurasian Customs Union for the region and the country. This was especially interesting in the light of the crises in Ukraine and the changing geopolitical landscape. The discussion offered a rare opportunity to debate questions of Eastern Partnership and of the Eurasian Union with relevant stakeholders.
