V. Dubovyk has participated in the expert workshop on the shifting dynamics of Black Sea security in Stockholm on December 7-8, 2017. It was organized by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).

The focus of the workshop was to promote a better understanding of security developments in the region, notably from the perspective of the littoral states. But, also, the NATO engagement and the influence of security issues in the South Caucasus on the Black Sea was examined as well.

One of the aims was to explore the interaction between the region's protracted conflicts and the shifting defence environment. The final objective was to consider the future of regional security. This was the subject of the final session "Future challenges and opportunities for regional security in the Black Sea", at which V. Dubovyk has presented his views.
