Training Activities

War, armed conflicts, terrorism, ecological disasters, annexations, occupation, post-pandemic crisis – all this has acquired a supra-global level. Problems of this scale require the generation of solutions and the deepening of international cooperation and interaction. In connection with Ukraine’s European integration course, the results of decentralization, and the country’s recovery, it is important to study the experience of the European Union in the formation of a modern paradigm of peace, security, and justice in the third millennium. The full-scale invasion of Ukraine and the processes of population migration associated with it changed demography. This determines new approaches to modelling sustainable, inclusive, smart development of communities using the EU experience. The problem of rebuilding and diversifying the development of urban and rural communities in Ukraine is acute.
