Esther Ademmer and Yaroslav Lissovolik examine the challenges for inclusive economic integration in post-Soviet Europe and Eurasia. They note that economic relations are not the source of the conflict over the regional order, but economic links have been a casualty of the conflict as technocratic matters of trade policy have become highly politicized. They propose a number of steps that could address the current situation, including bilateral agreements among regional states and trade blocs where none exist today, and an inclusive dialogue among the commissions of the EU, the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), and states that do not belong to either group.
