In 2016, WEASA focused on regional security and development. 2015 and 2016 proved to be fascinating, if sometimes turbulent, years for Eastern Partnership countries: many of them have been subjected to frozen conflicts or geopolitical difficulties, and are still classified as transition economies. Three Eastern Partnership countries furthermore signed Association Agreements with the EU, and WEASA 2016 looked at how the EU and trans-Atlantic community could support those states as they are striving to develop further.
