Please join us for a talk with Rilka Dragneva, Professor of International Legal Studies at the University of Birmingham.

The Eurasian Economic Union styles itself as a dynamic partner, operating pursuit of the common economic objectives of its member states. Critics say it is a tool of Russian foreign policy to coerce its neighbors. To what extent does the union serve the Kremlin's foreign policy goals? In what ways do its growing efforts to establish trade relations with countries such as Vietnam, Iran, and other countries represent true economic accomplishments?
