Location profile Lviv, Ukraine
Geographically and historically nestled between Russia and central European neighbours, the former Soviet republic and major energy transit country has been facing a severe conflict since 2014.
The future of Ukraine between Europe and Russia looks quite difficult: Tensions remain in the occupied territories and the Minsk process seems to be heading towards a dead end, if it is not dead already. Despite the fact that the conflict in eastern Ukraine seems to have disappeared from European media coverage, CGP’s Global Politics Workshops in Ukraine regularly address the role of academia in dealing with and, more importantly, in moderating conflicts like the prevailing one. Every year, the faculty workshop invites young PhDs and PostDocs from Germany, Ukraine and other countries in the region to jointly work on a future-oriented curriculum in the field of International Relations to possibly be implemented at a Ukrainian university in the near future.
