EISPS staff and students reflect on the Russia-Ukraine war

More than eight months the after Russia invaded Ukraine, on February 24 2022, the war is still ongoing. Thousands of Ukrainians have died defending their homeland, and millions have been displaced. The Russian aggression and annexation of Ukrainian territories have been met by extraordinary armed and civilian mobilisation, which, by most accounts, took the Russian government by surprise. In September, President Putin ordered a partial mobilisation of 300,000 men with previous military experience to boost their military strength. The war has implications beyond Ukraineโ€”in terms of global and regional security (including the threat of nuclear war), politics, and economics. In the UK and elsewhere in Europe, the war has contributed to the โ€˜cost of livingโ€™ crisis that many are facing. At this event, a panel of EISPS staff and students will share insights on the Russia-Ukraine war, drawing on both their research expertise and personal or family experiences of the war, and will facilitate a Q&A session for all EISPS staff and students to reflect on the war. The event will conclude with a drinks reception, so that we can continue the conversation informally.

We begin the event with a panel presentation, with each speaker giving remarks for about five minutes, before we turn to a Q&A session with the audience:

Anna Kvit (Visiting Research Fellow, EISPS): Gender, media, and public opinion in Ukraine.

Valentina Butenko (EISPS 2nd year student): Personal reflection on political mobilization in Ukraine.

Philippe Marliere (Professor of French and European Politics. EISPS and SELCS): Support for Putin on the Western left.

Maria Chilari (EISPS 2nd year student): Personal reflections on refugees and the response among neighbouring states.

Alaโ€™a Shehabi (Lecturer in Middle East Politics, EISPS and Bartlett): The effects on global energy markets.

Igor Rogelja (Lecturer in Global Politics, EISPS and SELCS): China and the Russia-Ukraine wear.

The event will be chaired and moderated by Kristin M. Bakke (Professor of Political Science and International Relations, EISPS and Political Science).
