On closer inspection nothing is what it seems.

War in Ukraine, tensions between Russia and its neighbors, refugees, and economic uncertainties. Instead of the expected peace dividend 25 years ago, Eastern Europe faces serious challenges. The whole European security order is threatened. In order to address these problems, arguably the most serious after 1962, an in-depth understanding of the complexities of the region is crucial. Experts that are able to analyze the situation, give policy advice, understand the regional complexities and cope with conflicting situations between governments and non-state actors are desperately needed.
