In 2015 the National Research Council (Cnr) of Italy stipulated a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the ‘Taras Shevchenko’ National University - TSNU of Kyiv (Ukraine), with the aim of fostering scientific and technological cooperation between the two institutions. In this framework, the Institute for International Legal Studies (Isgi-Cnr) has already realized various initiatives. In particular, already in 2015 some high education activities were carried out and an optional Course on: "EU Foreign Relations: Eastern Partnership and the New Association Agreements” was held at the Faculty of Law of the 'Taras Shevchenko' University; while in 2016 some research on the EU relations with Ukraine and the legal aspects of the humanitarian interventions in the Eastern Regions of the country were developed, and their results published in Italian and in Ukrainian journals.
This year, in May, Gianfranco Tamburelli, researcher and team leader at the ISGI, participated as a speaker in a Round Table on: “Integration Challenges - Internally Displaced People in Ukraine”, organized at the Faculty of Sociology, and in an international Conference on: “From ‘Legal Protection of Nature’ to Ecological Law of Ukraine”, held at the Law Faculty of the ‘Taras Shevchenko’.
Now, in November, Tamburelli has just hold at the same Law Faculty of the TSNU a short Course on: “The EU Foreign Policy - The Association Agreement between the EU & Ukraine".
In the next week, he will participate in various work meetings aimed at identifying priority themes for possible further joint research and high education activity.
