Thinking Ahead: Russia Beyond 2024

What conditions will shape the run-up to the 2024 presidential election in Russia? What type of leader is likely to emerge—if, indeed, a leadership change takes place? These are the questions at the heart of the scenarios. More

Security and Media
Projects

Security and Media

Reporting on international affairs and security policy in Europe is becoming a challenge these days. Over the past few years this complex matter has become increasingly difficult to understand for all actors involved: journalists, experts, politicians and consumers. Especially in foreign policy crisis situations it is not easy at all for journalists to get the facts right and come up with a balanced account of what has happened. More

Getting out from "In-Between"
Projects

Getting out from "In-Between"

The RAND Corporation is organizing a Track II initiative to identify avenues for building an inclusive regional order in post-Soviet Europe and Eurasia. While the competitive dynamic between Russia and the West has come to a head in Ukraine, all of the so-called "in-between" states are in fact objects of competition among outside powers. More

Security and Climate

The climate crisis threatens our existence. This has been a consensus among scientists for years. Nevertheless, the public's awareness of the urgency has only increased in the last few years. On the one hand, more and more extreme weather events can be more precisely attributed to climate change. On the other hand, the "Fridays For Future" movement has emerged, which has made the climate crisis a relevant political issue. The crisis is not just an environmental crisis. It is also a threat to states' stability, peace, and security.

The consequences of the climate crisis have implications for foreign policy. The climate crisis pushes for international cooperation in a geopolitical system competition that is currently intensifying. This competition must not make the necessary cooperation in overcoming the climate crisis impossible. At the same time, climate policy is also foreign policy, and the significant imminent changes (decarbonization, energy transition) are not in isolation from this geopolitical competition. The challenges are national, European and multilateral.

About FES ROCPE

The goal of  the FES Regional Office for Cooperation and Peace in Europe in Vienna is to come to terms with the challenges of peace and security in Europe since the collapse of the Soviet Union a quarter of a century ago. These issues should be discussed primarily with the countries of Eastern Europe – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine – and with Russia, as well as with the countries of the EU and with the US.

We support the following activities:

  • Regional and international meetings for developing new concepts on cooperation and peace in Europe
  • A regional network of young professionals in the field of cooperation and peace in Europe
  • Cooperation with the OSCE in the three dimensions, the politico-military, the economic and the human.
