Ukraine: Violence, Nation Building and Resilience

Ukraine achieved independence in 1991, and conflicts around national identity and history have profoundly affected the society. The Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014 followed by the war in the eastern region turned Ukraine into a conflict zone and a place for millions of internally place persons (IDPs). Students will gain valuable international experience with issues of identity, nation building, resilience and conflict, as well as a deep theoretical grounding in the analysis and resolution of gendered conflicts.
