Professor Elena Korosteleva has been invited to become an Honorary Non-residential Fellow of the European Institute for International Law and International Relations. The EIIR is a Policy institute based and registered in Brussels and Paris, producing knowledge and opinions on the effects of politics, economy, international law, human rights on Europe as well as on international relations. The Institute is independent, owing no allegiance to any governments or any political or other organisations. The EIIR stresses rigorous strategic research with a forward-looking policy orientation and places particular emphasis on bringing new perspectives to legal strategic discussions and their framing of socio-political consequences across Europe and beyond.
Professor Korosteleva was delighted to accept this invitation stating ‘This is an honour and an opportunity for me, as Director of the Global Europe Centre (Professional Studies) and the Principal Investigator for the GCRF COMPASS project, to be part of this prestigious global network of policy stakeholders. I look forward to working with my colleagues at EIIR to further develop global partnerships, especially across Central Eurasia, and extend our impact on the highest levels of decision-making, to ensure that academic knowledge has influence and role to play in a highly complex world we find ourselves today. Notably, our research of societal resilience, to develop self-reliance and enhance self-organisation, pushes us to re-think all-level governance to make it ‘local’ and sustainable.’
