With the collapse of communism, the old Eastern Bloc disappeared from the map as the various states of the region were integrated into Western structures such as NATO and the EU. The region appeared to have reached the End of History. Now, after nearly three decades, Eastern Europe is re-emerging as a distinct geopolitical entity, situated at the epicentre of the three great international crises of our time: the unravelling of the EU, the New Cold War between Russia and the West and the outbreak of conflict in the Middle East.

In this presentation, the University’s Forum on Geopolitics will explore the factors which are recreating Eastern Europe and the significance of the continent’s east for Europe’s overall security and political architecture.
