Dear Professor Churilov,

As a principal investigator of the ESRC-funded project Europeanising or Securitising the Outsiders: Assessing the EUs partnership-building approach with Eastern Europe (RES-061-25-0001) I wish to acknowledge your and your teams invaluable contribution to the project.

Not only we have found your teams participation, including organisation and delivery of the fieldwork results, to be most effective and punctual; we also have been very impressed with your intellectual engagement and your highly stimulating analytical discussions of the Ukraines position vis-à-vis the European Union. If I were to choose a partner again for my future work in the region, I would choose SOCIS without any doubt or hesitation, for its utmost professionalism and reliance.

I hope we will continue our fruitful collaboration in the future, and thank you once again for your contribution to the project!

With very best wishes,

Dr Elena A. Korosteleva-Polglase
