PARC | Understanding the Crisis in Ukraine
Perhaps nowhere in the world are local and global geopolitics mixing to create as volatile a situation as in Ukraine. Situated between Vladimir Putin’s re-surgent Russia and a NATO that in recent years seems to have lost its collective sense of purpose, Ukraine is quite literally a country in the middle. Since its emergence as a modern nation state following the fall of the Soviet Union the people of Ukraine have struggled with internal crisis and external threats. Today, as was the case so many times in the past, powerful external forces are seeking to chart Ukraine’s course. To help us understand these issues we have pulled together three of Canada’s leading Ukrainian experts.

Featured presenters:
1/ Natalia Khanenko-Friesen, Director of the Canadian Institute for Ukrainian Studies at the University of Alberta.
2/ Dr. Oleksandr Pankieiev, Research Coordinator and Editor-in-Chief of the Forum for Ukrainian Studies at the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, University of Alberta.
3/ Prof. Serhy Yekelchyk, Department of History and Slavic Studies at the University of Victoria, and current president of the Canadian Association for Ukrainian Studies.

Today, as was the case so many times in the past, powerful external forces are seeking to chart Ukraine’s course. To help us understand these issues we have pulled together three of Canada’s leading Ukrainian experts - one anthropologist and two historians.
