Imperatives and palliatives of economic integration within the framework of the Greater Eurasian partnership

Tkachuk S.P., Projects Director with Scientific Center for Eurasian Integration under RAS Scientific Board on Problems of Eurasian Economic Integration, Modernization, Competitiveness and Sustainable Development (the Head of the Center and the Chairman of RAS Scientific Board S.Yu. Glazyev)

Abstract. The foreign policy initiatives of the Russian leadership to create an exceptionally wide, far beyond the post-Soviet, area of preferential trade and economic cooperation in Eurasia, initiatives clothed in various phraseological forms — it was about the approval of both the «free trade zone from Lisbon to Vladivostok» and «The Greater Eurasian Partnership» (GEP), are a natural striving for the sovereignization of the interaction space with the participation of the Russian Federation in the conditions of stagnation of the former order and e new attempts by leaders of the western world to adapt international law to their own ideas and goal orientations. If a decade ago, the temporary space for creative reflection and realization of the prospects and limitations of the new economic and integration format in Eurasia was uncertain (due to the absence of irresistible force factors burdening the Russian-European dialogue), now the corresponding forecast horizon is in the range of 2023–2027.

This predetermines the need for Russia to energetically shift the priorities and modalities of trade, economic and investment relations in the Asia-Pacific Region (APR). However, the «turn to the East» announced a few years ago, while it took place mainly at the verbal-rhetorical level. In this context, the Russian agenda for implementing the head of state’s initiative to create a GEP should obviously be based on a realistic program of multidisciplinary, highly diversified cooperation, reflecting not only an economic, but also an ideological component designed to explain the natural and objective nature of such partnership.

This article attempts to define the GEP format as a flexible system of legal norms, joint projects and institutions that differ in: the diversity of interests of the participants and the purely voluntary nature of their cooperation; the presence of certain principles of its organization, priority (most attractive) areas of integration interaction, as well as mechanisms for planning relevant activities and a joint response to exogenous (in relation to partner countries) challenges and threats.
