Ukraine between its legacies and globalization: The problem of confused modernization


Dozent/inProf. Dr. Klaus Segbers
SemesterSommersemester 2018
RaumGarystr. 55, Hörsaal A

Do. 10:00 - 12:00

Ukraine has become a focal point for European politics and conflicts over the last two years both in terms of a fuzzy modernization course, and also as a trigger for a major external and security challenge. This seminar will address Ukraine from three sides. First, the current challenges and problems will be embedded in the broader horizon of Soviet legacies. Second, the current problems will be analyzed against the question of viability of Ukraine as a state. While all countries globally have experienced a loss of sovereignty facing the power of global flows, some are suffering also from additional attributes of failing states. Finally, the question of the external orientation of Ukraine will be addressed.

For some sessions, guests will be invited as resource persons.
