Details

Ukraine drew significant media attention after the 2013–2014 Revolution of Dignity and the subsequent undeclared war waged by Russia. However, the nature of these events and their impact on the social, economic, and political development of this country remain under-studied and, hence, often misunderstood. The reader is invited to take an inside look at the recent developments in Ukraine and to search for an answer to the question of whether transition from externally to internally driven development is possible in this case. Anton Oleinik argues that Ukraine is currently going through a revolutionary period aimed at building a nation-state and its aftermath. Ukraine is a latecomer in this process, especially compared with most other European countries. Its outcomes cannot be predicted with certainty. It is yet to be seen if a current surge in volunteerism and bottom-up civic initiatives will lead to the emergence of a viable and sustainable national democratic system in this country.

“The study of Ukraine in the aftermath of the 2014 events, the Maidan, is suffering from congestion because of the narrow, repetitive bandwidth of issues considered. This work is refreshing because it zeroes in on endogenous factors that resulted in a tectonic movement of societal plates that in the final analysis is the lasting contribution of the heroic mobilization of civil society. Oleinik is a welcomed new voice.”—Prof. Dr. Bohdan Krawchenko, Founding Director of the Institute of Public Administration and Local Governance at the Council of Ministers of Ukraine, Former Director of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies (CIUS) at the University of Alberta
