The Ukrainian crisis has attracted much international attention, yet little is known about how and why the EU and Russia ended up 'competing' over Ukraine. The seminar will focus on the deeper origins of the crisis by adopting a long-term perspective to the 'integration offers' presented to Ukraine by Russia and the EU and by highlighting the key role of Ukraine's political regime in interpreting and balancing between the two 'integration offers'. The seminar will provide an accessible overview of the complex background and multiple dimensions of the crisis, while also dispelling prevailing oversimplifications and misinterpretations.
