Pan-european Integration Processes:Towards a Mutual Vision through Cross-Border Synergies, Minsk Conférence-débat de l'Ifri et du Centre franco-autrichien pour le rapprochement en Europe (CFA)

The conference is organised by the Minsk Dialogue Track-II Initiative (Belarus) in cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (Germany) and the Austro-French Centre for Rapprochement in Europe (Austria-France), and supported by the French Institute of International Relations (IFRI), and the French and Austrian Embassies in Belarus.

The conference will work on the assumption that a way to greater pan-European integration goes through cross-border cooperation and synergies that result gradually from such mutually beneficial cooperation. To that end, the Minsk Dialogue expert group will prepare a report with an overview of current academic and policy discussions about pan-European integration processes and ideas on how to move these discussions onto a more pragmatic level. The report will be presented at the conference and guide discussions during the conference sessions.

The event will run in parallel with the high-level official conference on pan-European integration processes co-organised by the Government of Belarus and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe. The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belarus, a Eurasian Economic Union Commissioner and other officials will also participate in our Track-II conference.


• To examine ways to advance pan-European integration processes by facilitating crossborder cooperation in various areas of mutual interest (economic growth and business

opportunities, security challenges, and energy infrastructure).

• To discuss conceptual frameworks for advancing pan-European integration.

• To promote informed discussions about pan-European integration processes and challenges in the media.
