Ukraine after the Euromaidan

Challenges and Hopes


Edited By Viktor Stepanenko and Yaroslav Pylynskyi

Ukraine’s protest movement of 2013–14, known as the Euromaidan, and its culmination, the people’s uprising in late 2013–early 2014 became one of the most dramatic world events in recent years. The accession of Crimea to the Russian Federation and military conflict in the Donbas demonstrate that the dramatic dynamics of the country’s ongoing transformation are still far from predictable. This book examines the manifold aspects of Ukraine’s current crisis and its political upheaval. The contributors to the book, Ukrainian experts in a variety of disciplinary fields, explore social, political and cultural reasons and factors behind the country’s transformation in its national and regional dimensions, the impact of Ukraine’s revolution on European and global politics, and also the new challenges of tough reforms with which the country is faced. The contributors share the view that the Euromaidan brought new opportunities for Ukraine’s modern development and the greatest historical chance for the country’s European future since independence in 1991.

This new series focuses on the political, economic and cultural changes in Eastern, East-Central and South-Eastern Europe. It publishes scholarly papers presented at the “Eastern European Day” conferences held at the University of Fribourg. These annual conferences examine the various East European countries. Moreover, the series also presents a forum for other conferences held in Switzerland on topics related to Eastern Europe. It aims to reflect on what could be considered the rapprochement of the different branches of Swiss research on Eastern Europe (history, political science, philosophy, Slavic languages). The articles are written in English.
