REVUE : European Union Foreign Affairs Journal (vol. 1, 2014)

Hans-Jürgen ZAHORKA

From this issue of EUFAJ we welcome Frederic Labarre as new editor. He is a seasoned security policy expert from Ottawa/Canada, with a lot of experience in European countries and in NATO Partnership for Peace. In addition, we are happy to welcome Ofelya Sargsyan, too, who after her second M.A. degree at Flensburg University/Germany entered LIBERTAS - European Institute GmbH as Political Analyst and Junior Editor for EUFAJ where she will contribute significantly to this journal. This underlines also that we are aware that and how the South Caucasus region - where she comes from Yerevan/Armenia - will be in the focus of EU foreign policy in the next years. Both new colleagues are portrayed shortly on www.eufaj.eu. 

The topical events around the Eastern Partnership and Ukraine in particular justify that we dedicate one of our accents of this issue to the Russian government and the Eurasian Union, and another one to development policy. While the latter should not be lost "in routine", the Eurasian Union would be, in general, a legitimate objective as a regional integration. However, successful integrations have always been launched on a voluntary basis. 

And for conflict management and development policy it should be mentioned, that we in this number publish a new approach for conflict management (or conflict prevention) by the Swiss author Alec Schaerer, a road map for introducing a Green Economy - at the example of Trinidad and Tobago - and a contribution on the rights-based approach in development.
