A New European Social Contract for Ukraine

Three months of protests in Ukraine led to the fall of the Yanukovych regime. This revolutionary change precipitated the invasion of the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea by Russian armed forces. Therefore, the new Ukrainian authorities and all western international actors are engaged in finding an appropriate answer to the biggest external challenge to Ukrainian statehood, sovereignty and territorial integrity since 1991.

The Precedent of Kosovo, Crimea and Greater Russia

Crimea’s regional Parliament voted to become independent a week before it held its referendum asking whether to remain part of Ukraine or reunite with Russia. Last week, Crimea has become a de facto and de jure part of Russia. Interestingly, the independence bill referenced the precedent of Kosovo’s independence. It strikes me that there is more than just hypocrisy in this comparison, rightly deemed “shameful” by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Serbia and the West 15 Years after the NATO Bombing: Dislike or distrust?

Exactly 15 years after the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavian Serbia, the Serbian political arena has been overwhelmingly dominated by the Serbian Progressive Party, an odd conglomerate of Slobodan Milošević’s blue-eyed boys, radicals and nationalists who unexpectedly turned into pro-European politicians advised by American consultants and who signed the breakthrough agreement on the normalisation of the Serbia – Kosovo relations.

The Ukrainian Conundrum in Three Paintings

Unexpected developments in Ukraine are occurring at a very fast pace. On Saturday February 22nd, the dismissal of President Viktor Yanukovych and the release of Yulia Tymoshenko clearly marked a turning point in the crisis, surprising many observers. No less important were the seizure of Crimea by Russian troops a week later and the protests in eastern and southern Ukraine. For months we have been witnessing a political drama which has already created its own myths and political symbols.

How the West Has Shaped Georgia’s Self-Perception

In the past couple years, Georgia has been Europeanising: policies, practices and laws have been adjusted to EU standards to secure an Association Agreement (AA), a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) and a visa-free regime. However, we can observe the Europeanisation not only of Georgia’s policies, but also of its political culture. Although the Georgian and European political cultures still have little in common, the West has become a key point of reference in the debates on Georgian national identity.

Crimea and Punishment

Recent events in Ukraine are unfolding at a dizzying pace. From the attempted brutal clearing of the Maidan Nezalezhnosti to the subsequent deposing of Viktor Yanukovych, the Russo-Cossack push into Crimea and the de facto annexation of that peninsula, Ukraine seems situated on the brink of a national catastrophe. Meanwhile, Russia radiates serenity.
