The 2018 International Neighbourhood Symposium sought to discuss, assess, and understand the recent political and security developments in the three regions (Eastern Neighbourhood, the Mediterranean South, and Southeastern Europe) as well as around the globe with a particular focus on the role of the European Union and NATO.

The INS also aimed to enable participants to debate and understand the value of being a changemaker and managing the various changes be it societal, economic, or political in a fluid security environment. Two of the panels (on Neighbourhood and Security coordinated by Nadia Bureiko and Hanna Shelest) were initiated with the support of NGO ‘Quadrivium’ and NGO ‘Promotion of intercultural Cooperation’ within the ENACTED network – ‘European Union and its neighborhood. Network for enhancing EU’s actorness in the eastern borderlands (2017-2625), co-funded by the European Union.

One of the main objectives of the Symposium was to empower youth for change and cooperation. Due to this, in addition to panel discussions, days 3 and 4 were dedicated to the Peer to Peer Workshops, whereby participants developed joint action plans emanating from the cooperation with each other. In general, the Symposium gathered 35 participants from 13 countries and 22 speakers.
