The annual discussion about challenges and prospects for development of Ukraine was held in 4 April with more than 30 future professionals from Latvia and Ukraine in the fields of social sciences and law. The discussion brought together undergraduates of Department of Political Science and Spring School’s students representing Department’s partner universities from Ukraine.
Students were presenting reports on the progress of development of Ukraine in 4 different thematic panels- economics, politics, security and social processes. Students shared not only their findings and outcomes of analysis, but also came out with some interesting and innovative recommendations. As a result, it turned into attractive and exciting exchange of ideas inspiring for expanding the scope of the studies and for working out new practices of collaboration between the parties.
Students from Ukraine are enjoying an opportunity to study this spring semester in Department of Political Science thanks to the project financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs “Training programme of Ukrainian young professionals in University of Latvia – Spring School “EU studies – internal and foreign affairs”.
