Competition Between the European Union and the Russia-led Customs Union, lecture by Gabriel Balayan

Date: Thursday, February 13, 2014

Time: 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm

Contact: James Klebba ·

Location: College of Law, Room 344

The speaker will be Associate Professor Gabriel Balayan, who teaches at Yerevan State University in Armenia. For this academic year he is a Fulbright Scholar at the American University Washington College of Law and the Law Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. He is speaking here as part of the Fulbright  "Outreach" program.

The topic of Professor Balayan's talk will be “Competition Between the European Union and the Russia-led Customs Union –  Focus  on the Situation of Armenia and Ukraine, Including Constitutional Issues  and Future Trends.” This should be timely and interesting in view of the recent decision by the President of Ukraine not to pursue EU membership at this time, apparently  in response to economic assistance from Russia. Almost every day  since the President's  action  there have been ongoing and sometimes violent protests against this decision in Kiev. Armenia is presently part of the Customs Union but is also talking to the EU.
