In the era of globalization integration processes in the post-Soviet area influence the countries themselves, as well as the global politics as a whole. As evidenced by the positive indicators of economic recovery in the EAEU countries, the Eurasian Economic Union has survived the pandemic. It continues to present excellent prospects for comprehensive modernization, increasing the competitiveness of national economies, and creating conditions for stable development to improve the living standards of the member states' population. At the same time, there is an obvious need to popularize the Union among young people. Additionally, it is essential to develop methods to involve undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as young researchers, to participate in the processes of the EAEU in order to ensure their subsequent fruitful participation in determining further directions of Eurasian integration. How involved are young people into the processes of the EAEU at the present stage? What are the ways in which the youth can be interested in the activities of the integration association? Are today's young people ready to face the challenges facing the EAEU at the moment and successfully overcome them? How to increase the international interaction of young people through a coordinated policy of national authorities?
