Ukraine’s 2019 elections, U.S. domestic political controversies, and Russia’s renewed engagements with European states are having important impacts on the Normandy-format negotiations designed to resolve the fate of Ukraine’s conflict-affected zone.

This seminar will position the situation in Ukraine within broader international conflicts and analyze the impact of most recent developments on potential conflict resolution strategies.

This event unites subject experts and academics to discuss the complex network of implicated entities, their interests, and outside geopolitical factors impacting the Ukraine conflict. A seminar-style discussion, incorporating audience members, aimed to analyze options for the reintegration of the societies on both sides of the separation line and effective return of separatist-controlled territories under government control.
