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.”
