The domestic policy crisis in Ukraine and Maidan, with its transformations and probable outcomes,

Armenia’s turn towards the Customs Union and sped-up process, the publicized Road Map,

The referendum in Gagauzia-as a hindrance for Moldova on its way to EU association, as well as a signal to other regions with frozen or latent conflicts 

Russia-EU Summit, and in general, acceptable formats of negotiations between these locomotives of the two integration processes 

What does a “European package” mean and can it show “to the Eastern Partnership skeptics” that all talks on the unfolding of the European Partnership project are yet untimely

In fact, these and many more issues and aspects were discussed in the conference. These were related to both integration processes that as practice shows have not yet illustrated any potential for synergy.
