Supra-, Ultra- or Pan-Nationalism? Which of these principles will
determine Ukraine's future? Will Kyiv seek gradual integration into the
EU and embrace the Union's supra-national approach, with its first
institutional expressions, an Association Council, Association Committee
and Parliamentary Association Committee, already foreseen in the
initialed EU-Ukraine Association Agreement? Or will Ukraine eventually
succumb to Russia's neo-imperial so-called "Eurasian" scheme, and become
an integral part of the Kremlin's supposedly pan-Slavic "Russian World"
(russkii mir)? Or will the radical, Galicia-based ethno-nationalism of
parties like the so-called All-Ukrainian Union "Svoboda," and the
historical debate around the OUN legacy isolate the country, and, in the
worst case, tear it apart? In this lecture and the following
discussion, we will analyze the contents and implications of these
different projects for Ukraine's future, and try to determine which
scenario or combination of scenarios is most likely to materialize.
The event will take place on 16 April 2013 (Tuesday) from 16:45 to
18:15 in Vilnius University's Institute of International Relations and
Political Science, room 303, during Jovita Neliupšienė lecture "Belarus
and Ukraine Studies."
