Zoom Conf.: Ukraine in East-Central Europe: Kyiv’s Bilateral Relations and Prospects of Regional Multilateralism @IDMVienna, 18 Sep 2020, 14:20-19:30

[Feel free to forward, share or post.]


International Hybrid Conference

“Ukraine in East-Central Europe:
Kyiv’s Bilateral Relations and Prospects of Multilateralism in the Region”

Zoom & IDM, Vienna, 18 September 2020, 2:20-7:30 p.m. (CEST)
Conference organized by IDM in cooperation with Paneuropa-Union (Vienna) and Ukrainian Institute for the Future (UIF, Kyiv)Website: http://www.idm.at/veranstaltungen/aktuelle-veranstaltungen/item/ukraine-in-east-central-europe
Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/328324144906900/Youtube Livestream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4Nq0m3HJmo&feature=youtu.be


What is the role of Ukraine for the future of East-Central Europe, and vice versa? Where does Kyiv politically stand now, and should it strategically engage, in the future, within the area from Prague to Tallinn, from Riga to Baku? How can Ukraine’s relations with other East-Central European countries develop? What are the chances, opportunities and hindrances for these bilateral relations to grow, broaden and intensify, or to stagnate and even deteriorate? Can Kyiv expect and should thus work towards new bilateral treaties with its geographically closest strategic partners, and if so – with which countries towards what kind of agreements? Is there – if such upgraded relations were to develop – an opportunity to create not only deeper bilateral ties? Are there also chances for new multi-lateral networks or structures? Could such novel multilateralism around Ukraine go beyond the already existing, yet geographically and functionally circumscribed Organization for Democracy and Economic Development (GUAM), Visegrad Four, Bucharest Nine Group, and Three Seas Initiative?

WORLD AFFAIRS: Call for Rebuttals on the Future of Ukrainian-German Relations

wafj_183_1.cover
[Please, excuse any cross-posting, and feel free to share, forward or publish.]
 
Dear colleagues,

the editors of the SAGE Publishing, Scopus Elsevier-listed “World Affairs Journal,” founded in 1837 and located in Washington, DC, are prepared to consider publication of scholarly rebuttals to my recent essay, in the 183rd volume of WORLD AFFAIRS:

“Can Germany Become a Major Ally of Ukraine? Counterintuitive Deliberations on a Coming Partnership between Kyiv and Berlin”
See: https://doi.org/10.1177/0043820020906371

PDFs of the essay can be downloaded from Academia.edu and ResearchGate:
https://academia.edu/42184544/Can_Germany_Become_a_Major_Ally_of_Ukraine_Counterintuitive_Deliberations_on_a_Coming_Partnership_between_Kyiv_and_Berlin
https://researchgate.net/publication/339817378_Can_Germany_Become_a_Major_Ally_of_Ukraine_Counterintuitive_Deliberations_on_a_Coming_Partnership_between_Kyiv_and_Berlin

The WAJ’s editorial board would be ready to “consider any rebuttals, provided they are thoroughly formulated and referenced.” You would have to follow WAJ’s standards regarding its articles’ analytical, linguistic and formal style, and to provide some empirical data in your essay. Please, consult these submission guidelines:

https://journals.sagepub.com/author-instructions/WAF

Please, do not burden the World Affairs Journal with half-ready manuscripts or polemical texts that may be substantively relevant, but are, as such, not publishable in an academic outlet. Note also that the journal has no office secretary or technical editor who could take care of problems regarding your essay’s orthography, references, transliteration, punctuation etc. These issues need to be solved by yourself before submission.

Your text has to be submitted via this Clarivate Analytics submission site for which you will need an ORCID number:

https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/waf

After successful submission, you will have to go through several editorial rounds and approve the final pages for print.

Keep me in the loop if you decide to submit. However, I can not take part in writing any such rebuttals.

Cheers
Andreas

Verkehrte Welt? Überdurchschnittliche deutsche Maschinenexporte nach Russland seit Sanktionsbeginn 2014

DWO-WI-Russland-Oel-Mschinen-mku-jpg

Frage an Handelsexperten: Diese kürzlich von Alexej Hock in der WELT (https://www.welt.de/wirtschaft/article195200199/Sanktionen-Das-Russland-Paradoxon-im-Freistaat-Sachsen.html) veröffentlichte Graphik deutet einen statistischen Zusammenhang zwischen dem Wert der Exporte deutscher Maschinen nach Russland und dem Weltmarktpreis für Rohöl an. Wahrscheinlich kann man für viele russische Importwaren ähnliche Diagramme erstellen. Grund ist offensichtlich die enge Verbindung zwischen dem internationalen Ölpreis und der Devisenausstattung russischer Privatunternehmen sowie staatlicher Institutionen.
Ab 2014, dem Jahr der Verhängung von EU-Sanktionen gegen Russland, kommt es offenbar zu einem partiellen Aufweichen dieser bis dahin scheinbar engen Korrelation. Paradoxerweise sanken jedoch die russischen Importe deutscher Maschinen nicht stärker als der Ölpreis. Eine solche Abweichung hätte man von den Effekten der Sanktionen erwarten können.
Vielmehr weicht die Entwicklungskurve deutscher Exporte nach Russland ab dem Beginn der Sanktionen 2014 von der gesunkenen Ölpreiskurve NACH OBEN ab. Die deutschen Maschinenexporte sind – unter den Bedingungen neuer strenger EU-Handelsbeschränkungen – anscheinend weniger stark gefallen, als es der damalige Einbruch des Ölpreises und dessen Auswirkungen auf die russische Kaufkraft aufgrund früherer Parallelentwicklungen erwarten ließ.
Hinzu kamen in dem Berichtszeitraum seit 2014 etliche politische Neuentwicklungen, wie die Krimannexion, Donbasinvasion, Syrienintervention, Türkeispannungen etc., die für Russlands Staat wahrscheinlich finanziell aufwändig waren und sind. Ebenfalls hinzu kamen etliche nichteuropäische Sanktionen der USA, Kanadas, Australiens, Japans usw., welche vermutlich ebenfalls potentielle russische Finanzressourcen für Maschineneinkäufe im Ausland geschmälert haben.
Wie ist dieses Paradoxon zu erklären? Oder interpretiere ich diese Graphik falsch? Verkehrte Welt?

Forum 2019 Key Topic:

A phrase from US politics in the 1980s – “all politics is local” – is just as relevant in Ukraine today as it was in America back then. Cities are a driving force of economic prosperity and political progress, vital centres of democracy, and a focus of both social tension and community cohesion. Kyiv is a global city with an ancient heritage, and many modern challenges. Ukraine’s decentralisation, democratisation and urbanisation policies are big political and administrative tests. They also involve broader economic, social and even cultural consequences.

Different cities can be very different things. Urban planning policies and smart investment play a vital part in making our cities both dynamic and harmonious places to live in. Cities can be the source of both security and insecurity: centres of corrupt clan networks and criminal gangs versus pioneers of democracy and national reform projects; the context for individuals’ alienation and loneliness versus frameworks for citizens’ close interaction and strong community-building; causes of environmental pollution versus generators of sustainable growth and ecological innovation; the scene of inter-communal tensions versus platforms for inclusive policies and successful integration. Our Forum’s four panels and keynote debate will address these topics, bringing together discussants with very different professional profiles, interests and expertise. The concluding debate will challenge the alumni and audience to identify their priorities and set an agenda for the next generation.

Forum 2019 Specific Topics:

  1. Keynote debate: Populism and the challenge to liberal democracy
  2. Putting politics into practice: Global city planning in the 21st Century
  3. Culture, Heritage, Identity and Integration
  4. Smart investment: Jobs, Growth and Sustainable Development
  5. An Agenda for the Next Generation

Questions to be answered:

  1. How do we ensure that growth in cities is inclusive, not divisive?
  2. How can we balance safety and security, on the one side, with civil liberties, on the other?
  3. How should we address tensions between national, regional and city governments?
  4. How do we curb corruption and promote transparency?
  5. How will the next generation use new tools and smart investment to solve old issues?
 

The Pulse of Ukraine is a yearly forum organised within the framework of the Democracy Study Centre (DSC), a project founded by the German-Polish-Ukrainian Society (GPUS) and implemented in cooperation with the European-Ukrainian Youth Policy Centre with the generous support of the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.

The Forum’s objective, at a time when Europe is haunted by an uncertain future and rising illiberalism, is to bring together, connect and inspire young leaders and innovators, “idea-preneurs,” to strengthen their potential to build, defend and advance democratic societies. At GPUS, we believe that we can make a difference by promoting cross-border, cross-sectoral and cross-generational dialogue and collaboration which will enable us to better feel the pulse of our countries as well as times, and will help us build stable, modern and fairer societies.

Ukraine is a country on the move, working assiduously to overcome its Soviet past, and create conditions for a sustainable democratic future. It is on the front-line of the struggle for a united Europe, buffeted and challenged with an armed conflict on its territory. The Forum will highlight the challenges and successes on this path as well as seek to provide impetus for positive change.

The conference participants consist of young politicians, senior experts, grassroots activists, civic leaders, journalists, and entrepreneurs from Ukraine and abroad as well as donors, diplomats and representatives of international organisations and delegations to Ukraine.

The Forum is hosted by the DSC Fellowship including twenty four fellows and scholars organised within a framework of high-level and in-depth monthly working sessions, idea-labs producing mentored scholarly work, as well as ambitious civic initiatives in the sphere of civic education, distance learning and youth engagement in grassroots politics.

Secondary literature list for my seminar “Ukraine between the European and Eurasian Unions” @UniJena, in April-June 2019 (books, journals, websites)

Flag EU Ukraine Russia

“Ukraine between the European and Eurasian Unions: Revolution, War, Reform”

The seminar aims to introduce Master-students into one of Europe’s critical conflicts today, and to illustrate, using the example of Ukraine, inter-relation between Europeanization, post-Soviet transformation and security politics. We will touch upon general themes of European studies, like democracy promotion, neighborhood policies, transposition of norms and conditionality, as well specific geopolitical problems of Ukraine in its identity and territorial conflict with Russia. We will discuss Ukraine’s post-communist systemic change within the context of European integration, Atlantic cooperation and Russian revanchism from 1990 until today.
