Latvijas intereses Eiropas Savienībā 2015/1

In November 2013 the historic signing of the Association Agreements (AA) between the European Union and four Eastern Partnership (EAP) countries, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, was supposed to be the highlight of the first Lithuanian presidency of the Council of the European Union. In a few weeks time Latvia will host the EAP Summit, which is supposed to be a continuation of the decisions and policies adopted in Vilnius. Therefore, the editorial board of the journal has decided to devote a special edition exclusively to EAP issues, thus contributing to the on- going debate on what will be the core of the Riga Summit and the decisions relevant to the future of the policy which will be taken by European leaders.
