Memories of a Better Future? Analysing Post-Maidan Condition from Multiple Perspectives

Dec 07, 2017 18:00 - 21:30 CET
Repräsentanz der Robert Bosch Stiftung, Französische Straße 32, 10117 Berlin, Germany

Almost four years after the Revolution of Dignity the media attention towards Ukraine has dropped significantly, although the war in Donbas is still going on. The hope of Euromaidan for less corruption and more transparency in politics and economy is waning and although some reforms have been adopted in this direction, the oligarchic system still thwarts the progress. At the same time, there are some civil society organizations and politicians who continue to strongly advocate the goals of Euromaidan. Thus, the ambiguity of post-Maidan condition remains, begging the questions about its nature. What have been the main changes and challenges in politics, culture, and society since 2014? What is the influence of war on Ukrainian society and politics? How is the current situation perceived from within Ukraine and from without? Is it already possible to frame a post-Maidan Ukraine?
