2008 02 04

At the beginning of summer of 2007 the Centre of Geopolitical Studies has elaborated the study „Evaluation and Perspectives of the Relationship between Lithuania and the United States“ by the order of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Lithuania.

The Study was prepared by: Dr. Algirdas Miškinis, professor, Dr. Evaldas Nekrašas, Dr. Egdūnas Račius, Vadim Volovoj (expert of CGS), Martynas Zapolskis (authors of articles of www.geopolitika.lt), Audronė Virbickaitė and Rūta Žukaitė.

The main goal of the study was to reveal possible ways for coordination of Lithuania’s actions in the international stage with the foreign political ambitions of the United States within the context of new global realia in order to enhance the strategic partnership of the countries. Here the analysis of Lithuania’s place in the scheme of relationship between the United States and the EU is inevitable.  The first part of the study deals specifically with this issue. The second part will deal with the problematic of the post-soviet CIS space, namely: the interests of the United States in this space and possible Lithuania’s contribution to their implementation. The third part will analyze possible assistance of Lithuania to Americain the Middle East (today this is one of the key, if not the most important priorities of foreign policy of the US) and in the far regions (e.g. Africa). A separate part of the study will deal with economic relations between Lithuania and the United States. Its objective is to propose possible ways for the development of this relationship by attracting additional US investment to Lithuania.
