From Trump to Biden in the eyes of Eastern Europe (and the European Union)


From Trump to Biden in the eyes of Eastern Europe (and the European Union)



On January 20, Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America. After four years of Donald Trump’s “America First” approach, it is expected that Biden’s administration will revitalize transatlantic relations with European allies and will work on restoration and improvement of mechanisms of global order. While for the Western liberal democracies it will mark the beginning of “going back to normal” in relations with the US, Eastern European countries also have their own hopes from the next US president.

Thus, on January 27, within the framework of the “3 DCFTAs” Project CEPS in cooperation with the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Forum is organizing an online-webinar “From Trump to Biden in the eyes of Eastern Europe (and the European Union)”.

The webinar will hear experts from Eastern Partnership states and Russia debate the legacy of Trump’s presidency for their countries and present expectations from the Biden’s forthcoming administration in various sectors of bilateral relations ranging from the support of democracy, security cooperation, economics to fighting the pandemic and climate change. The event will be open for audience participation in Q & A session.


This event is free and open to the public, but you must register to gain access to the ZOOM meeting.

Once registered, you will receive instructions on how to join this event.
