Kaliningrad Identity was the issue of two seminars held in the Russian exlave of Kaliningrad in 2005 and 2007. This report contains papers mainly from the second seminar, which was divided into four topics: History-Bearers, Democrats, Neighbours and Culture-Bearers.

The purpose of the seminar was to discuss the meaning of identity in the Kaliningrad region, with particalur reference to the Baltic Sea Region and the EU, in order to:

  • raise awareness of, and increase interest in, our close but not very well-known neighbours
  • increase long-term cooperation with the Kalinigrad region at various levels
  • develop cooperation between Russia-Kaliningrad and the EU and to strengthen democracy in the Baltic Sea region.
