Leading Russian, European and American experts will participate in this conference organised by CIDOB in collaboration with the Jamestown Foundation and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES). On March 18th, Vladimir Putin will renew his term as president of Russia until 2024. The elections, beyond feeling the pulse of popular support for the Russian leader, will be a mere formality. However, there are serious uncertainties about the changes that the Kremlin can introduce in domestic politics and in the Russian foreign agenda and, with them, its impact on NATO, the EU and the disputed Eastern and Southern Neighbourhoods.[read more]

In the framework of the conference series “What's going on in the world?”, and on the occasion of the publication of the books “La democracia en Europa” and “¿Dónde vas, Europa?”, CIDOB organises a session with Daniel Innerarity, Javier Solana and Milagros Pérez Oliva moderated by Pol Morillas on the 31st of January. The speakers will analyse the state of democracy in Europe and its future, as well as the latest events that have taken place in the continent and have tested, not only the values of the EU, but also its very existence. Today, the EU is looking for a new narrative that provides legitimacy and strength and, as Innerarity highlights, stays away from populist simplifications or technocratic justifications. [read more]

Russia is back. Few would disagree with this statement, but what does it mean exactly? What kind of Russia is back? What does it imply for the European security architecture and the global order? In March 2018, Russia will hold new presidential elections and it is likely that Vladimir Putin will renovate his mandate for 6 more years until 2024. However, noticeable signals of mounting problems, growing social discontent, uncertain economic prospects, military interventions abroad and tensions with some neighbors and the West, trigger important questions on whether and how the Kremlin will be able to face these challenges and what international implications will it entail.

11 and 12 January 2018 – IBEI & ESADEgeo, Barcelona
Global governance today involves a wide range of actors, ranging from governments to civil society organizations and multinational corporations, both in formal international organizations as well as in novel, transnational settings. The ‘opening up’ of global governance has been widely hailed for ushering in broader participation and closer links with the public sphere, while it has also drawn critique from those who fear capture by special interests the marginalization of states, governments and the public interest. However, we still know little about which actors enjoy what kind of access, and with what consequences. On the flipside, we know little about who is excluded, formally and informally, and the problems this creates. [read more]
