Ukraine: Survival and Reforms
The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) invites you to a discussion on Ukraine’s internal development and the dynamics of the domestic scene against the background of the ongoing war in Eastern Ukraine and Russian aggressions.
What are the challenges and problems riding the country? What political and economic reforms are necessary and what support is needed for them in order to be implemented? How can Ukraine reduce the dependency and vulnerability with regard to Russia and handle political and economic threats and pressures from the Kremlin?
Andrew Wilson, Senior Policy Fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations. He has published widely on the politics and culture of the European neighborhood, particularly on Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, and on the comparative politics of democratization in the post-Soviet states, especially its corruption by so-called ‘political technology’.
Alex Voronov, political editor, Eskilstuna-Kuriren.
The seminar will be moderated by Lena Jonson, Head of the Russia Research Program, Swedish Institute of International Affairs.
