Ukraine and European Security: International Mechanisms as Non-Military Security Options for Ukraine


Suphan Erkula

The ongoing debate over Ukraine's future foreign and security policies has fuelled intense and acrimonious discussions between academics, politicians, and journalists. Notwithstanding its recent and comparatively successful economic and political reforms, Ukraine is still desperately searching for effective solutions to the challenges posed to its security since its emergence as an independent state in the aftermath of the post-Cold War changes. The monograph analyses the currently existing processes within the framework of Ukraine's foreign and security policies and attempts to define possible key elements for managing challenges to its security.
Contents: Focusing on the fundamentals and the main trends of Ukraine's foreign and security policies, two options are discussed at the regional and the international level - the 'gradual' and the 'evolutionary' approach.
