We are happy to announce that Jean Monnet Project within the ERASMUS+ Programme ‘European Union and its Neighbourhood. Network for Enhancing EU’s Actorness in the Eastern Borderlands – ENACTED’ has been officially launched!

The ENACTED project associates research, teaching, debate and dissemination activities in the area of European Studies, in the framework of a network of 12 partners (8 universities and 4 NGOs) from 6 countries: 3 EU member states (Romania, Hungary and Poland), and 3 eastern neighbouring countries (Moldova, Ukraine, Belarus), having as main topic EU actorness and its role in the eastern borderlands. The project is coordinated by the Centre for European Studies, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, România, and NGO ‘Quadrivium’ is a regional partner in the project together with two more institutions from Ukraine –  NGO “Promotion of Intercultural Cooperation” and Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University.

The general aim of the ENACTED project is the consolidation and promotion of excellence in research and teaching of European Studies, particularly with regards to the topic of the EU actorness, by integrating partners of the network, as well as increasing their role in the society.

As such, this project seeks, first, to launch a new approach to analyse the EU’s actorness capacity to act in its Eastern neighbourhood, starting with the premise that a resilient EU able to live up to challenges stemming from the eastern neighbourhood should also play a more active role in its immediate borderland regions by enhancing cooperation and by raising awareness about the urgent need to contribute to the stabilization of the regions.

In order to boost the EU’s value-based logic in the region, the project seeks, second, to promote the concept of an “open academic network” in the eastern borderlands by integrating academic partners from countries located on both sides of the EU’s eastern borders:

  1. universities which produce and foster knowledge about the EU;
  2. NGOs that are closely interested in EU-related matters and which are able in partnership with the universities to generate synergies between the academia and the civil society for disseminating knowledge in the area of European Studies.

We will further inform about the ENACTED progress!
