UA: Ukraine Analytica, Issue 2 (4) 2016.

Im Rahmen des Projekts “Ukrainer in Polen und Deutschland –zivilgesellschaftliches und politisches Engagement, Erwartungen, Handlungsmöglichkeiten” veröffentlichten Ljudmyla Melnyk, Magdalena Patalong und Richard Steinberg ein neues Paper zum Thema „Ukrainian Diasporic Community in Germany: Main Characteristics and its Engagement for its Home Country”. Das Paper, das in der aktuellen Ausgabe der ukrainischen Online-Zeitschrift UA:Ukraine Analytica erschienen ist, befasst sich mit der Rolle der ukrainischen „diasporic community“ in Deutschland:

During Euromaidan and its aftermath, the Ukrainian community in Germany experienced the emergence of new non-state actors: civically engaged Ukrainians, forming a new diasporic community. Based on the research project “#EngageEUkraine – Engagement of Ukrainians in Poland and Germany”, the paper examines selected aspects of the study. By asking if the diasporic community could act as a new homogenous non-state actor, the analysis shows that such potential exists: with their activities, the diasporic community does not only indirectly contribute to the democratization of Ukraine, but at the same time acts as a cultural bridge between German and Ukrainian societies, thereby potentially contributing to the improvement of relations between both states. Therefore, its support should also be of interest to Ukrainian government.”
