EU-Ukraine Association Agreement – What It Brings to Europeans, Dutch, Ukrainians

On 15 December, The Hague Institute for Global Justice and the Embassy of Ukraine in the Netherlands organized a discussion entitled “The Ukraine-EU Association Agreement – What it brings to Europeans, to Dutch, to Ukrainians”.  

The discussion, moderated by Dr. Abi Williams, President of The Hague Institute, featured H.E. Mr. Olexander Horin, Ambassador of Ukraine to the Netherlands, and H.E. Mr. Darius Jonas Semaška, Ambassador of Lithuania to the Netherlands, and Mr. Tony van der Togt, expert on EU Eastern Partnership and Senior Research Fellow at Clingendael

The three panelists focused on the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and its short and long-term implications. What is the vision of the EU and its neighbors on how to shape the ideals of democracy, rule of law and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, market economy, sustainable development and good governance? And how does this secure a more stable continent? This discussion sought to clarify what the Agreement exactly means for the EU, the Netherlands and Ukraine, in terms of promoting and securing prosperity and stability on its eastern borders.
