22nd Ukraine Breakfast Debate „Ukraine 30 years after independence: Long term trends and the road ahead”
Since 24 August 2021, Ukraine looks back on 30 formative years of independence. To mark this momentous occasion, the Kyiv Razumkov Centre and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung have published a study entitled “Ukraine: 30 Years on the European Path”. As part of our 22nd Ukraine Breakfast Debate, that for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic will take place as an on-site physical event, the authors will share key findings of their analytical work. More specifically, we invite you to discuss the following questions with us:
- How has the Ukrainian political system and its institutions transformed and what long-term trends can be observed?
- What are the social implications of the country’s transformation and how has the relationship between the state and its citizens changed?
- Which challenges arise in the face of Ukraine’s advancing Europeanisation?
- What course will Ukrainian foreign policy take and what are some of the considerations regarding its security and defence policies?
Please note that the event will be held in English.
