OSW took part in an international research project V4 - Backing the Advocacy Strategy for the European Integration of the Western Balkans. The project was carried out in cooperation with our partners from the Visegrad Group states and the Western Balkan states.
The project aims to deepen internal cohesion of the Visegrad Group through the enhanced mobility of experts among all four Visegrad countries. By focusing on selected priority areas of Visegrad cooperation, the project’s goal is twofold. Firstly, it seeks to enrich the existing research capacity of already well established think tanks in all four Visegrad countries. Secondly, it aims to contribute to the deepening of knowledge of well recognized Visegrad experts.
The project is aimed at examination of migration patterns in Eastern European states bordering the EU ( Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus) in the perspective of expected emigration to the EU (with particular emphasis on emigration to V4) after possible visa abolition. It focuses on qualitative and quantitative estimation of migration stocks of Eastern European states to the EU and V4 in the forthcoming 10 years. Research of that kind has never been conducted with regard to Eastern Partnership states.
The project will list and analyze the available ways of implementing the EU Gas Target Model in the V4 countries, including full price zone mergers, trading regions, market coupling. The assumptions for each possible solution will be assessed against approved and likely developments in supplies and connections between the V4 countries and with neighbouring countries, with a view to fulfil the cryteria singled out in the Gas Target Model Document as proposed by the Council of European Economic Regulators and endorsed by the Madrid Forum.
This POLINARES project will examine how tension and conflict may undermine future global peace and economic development, and to explore new modes of behaviour which promote an appropriate balance between competition and collaboration.
