15 June 2017, the General Assembly of the Trans European Politicy Studies Association unanimously accepted the Razumkov Centre as a member of the Association.
The decision was preceded by a thorough study of the Center's capacity-building, personal meetings and negotiations that took place in Kyiv and during the TEPSA conference in Malta in November 2016. The final decision was taken at the General Assembly meeting, where the Razumkov Centre was represented by Deputy Director General Y. Yakymenko.
Thus, Ukraine has joined the oldest network of European research institutions, which currently consists of 38 member institutions and associate members located in 35 European countries that carry out research in the field of European affairs. Each country is represented by one institution.
TEPSA and its member institutions are engaged in a two-fold approach providing expertise on EU policies and politics combined with a vast experience in organising and conducting EU-wide research, training and networks.
The TEPSA General Assembly was held in the framework of the next pre-presidential conference taking place in the EU member states on the eve of their presidency of the EU Council. This time the conference took place on 15-16 June in Tallinn and was dedicated to the upcoming Estonian presidency. Together with the Razumkov Centre, the Iustinianus Primus Law Faculty (Macedonia) also joined the Association.
