Our times witness rapid and substantial changes in the global geopolitics. These changes result in dramatic alterations in political, economic, and strategic balances in the world and the different regions of the world as parts of the big global puzzle. The Black Sea region is no exception.

At the panel discussion jointly organized by the Ankara-based Center for Eurasian Studies (AVİM) and the Kyiv-based Ukrainian Institute for the Future (UIF), the Black Sea region will be put under focus. Following the opening remarks of the Turkish and Ukrainian ambassadors in Kyiv and Ankara, and the directors of AVİM and UIF, specialists from Turkey and Ukraine will discuss the current developments in the Black Sea region in conjunction with the geopolitical architecture in Eurasia and exchange their views on the prospects of regional cooperation and the possibilities of institutionalization of intra-regional partnerships.
