About Us

Hybrid Neighbourhood has the aim to provide insights on a specific geographical region: Central-Eastern Europe.
The space that embraces the lands between Germany and Russia and between the Baltic, the Adriatic and the Black Seas from being the periphery of Europe has turned into a key theatre of the political developments of the continent.

The name of the blog wants to be a clear reference to the context that we analyse: neighbourhood broadly refers to the space in which we move; hybrid, on the other hand, recalls the multiplicity of actors (state and not) that operate in this area, and the myriad of instruments used by the same in order to push for their respective agendas.

Rather than a simple blog of news and chronicle of events, Hybrid Neighbourhood wants to provide analyses of these events with the tools acquired in many years of political science (and related fields) studies.
