Faculty of law proposes the creation of a harmonious economic community stretching from Lisbon to Vladivostok

On 18 December the Faculty of Law offered the wider audience a set of public lectures on issues of the European integration. International EU project entitled “European Union and Eurasian Union as strategic partners in European integration: on the way to “Big Europe” from Lisbon to Vladivostok” seeks to develop a huge potential for partnership between Russia and the EU. There are many things that bring us together: the complementarity and interdependence of our economies, the objective indivisibility of European security, extensive human contacts and common cultural roots. The fact that European culture in the broad sense spans the area to the Pacific coast is definitely Russia's historic achievement.

Yulia Sushkova, Head of Law Faculty, highlighted the topicality of issues of the European integration in terms of Russia’s national interests and encouraged students to take a pro-active attitude towards the project. The project draws on guest lecturing delivered by prominent Russian scholars versed in European integration and envisages publication of monographs and course books.

The project’s main objective is to develop and implement a new academic module. Already in the second semester of 2013-2014 academic year two new courses will be introduced: “Methodology of the European integration: issues of theory and practice” and “Law of EU as the source of best practices for Eurasian union”. The project also envisages an international conference devoted to the problem of European integration which is to be held in 2016.
