Die friedenspolitische Ambivalenz deutscher Pipelinedeals mit Moskau – eine interdependenztheoretische Erklärung des russisch-ukrainischen Konfliktes @Je_Sirius

Dieser Aufsatz führt einen wenig beachteten Aspekt der deutschen Ostpolitik der letzten 25 Jahren in die aufgeheizte europäische Diskussion darüber ein, wie man am besten mit Putins Russland umgehen solle. Ausgehend von der bekannten Interdependenztheorie wird argumentiert, dass durch die von Berlin geförderten zwei Nord-Stream-Projekte die russisch-ukrainischen Wirtschaftsbeziehungen gelockert und dadurch eine Konfrontation zwischen den beiden postsowjetischen Republiken erleichtert wurde. Besonderheiten der überraschend friedlichen Entwicklung der Ukraine in den ersten zwanzig Jahren ihres Bestehens als unabhängiger Staat werden der Eskalation der Spannungen zwischen Moskau und Kyjiw in den Jahren 2013–2014 gegenübergestellt. Die Fertigstellung des zweiten Strangs der ersten Nord-Stream-Pipeline im Oktober 2012 wird als eine entscheidende Entwicklung angesehen, die dem Kreml gegenüber der Ukraine freie Hand gab. Die Verringerung der wirtschaftlichen Interdependenz infolge der Umleitung sibirischer Gasexporte in die neue Ostsee-Pipeline führte zu einem Territorialkonflikt zwischen der Ukraine und Russland, der an Entwicklungen erinnert, die zuvor in Moldau und Georgien stattgefunden hatten.

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?

Working Language

English, Ukrainian

 

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.

Deadline for preliminary paper or abstract submission in English, Ukrainian, Russian or German: 1 September 2019.
Deadline for paper submission of fully edited and formatted English-language papers: 1 November 2019.
Note that JSPPS is an academic journal. Thus your empirical or legal findings should be embedded in some already existing topical and theoretical literature, as well as discuss your study’s implications for this literature. Should your paper be seen as an examination, exploration, illustration, falsification, verification, sustentation, devaluation, contestation or modification of previous empirical or legal research, or/and existing relevant theories? An ad hoc investigation into your particular topic itself will, for JSPPS, not do.
The paper should:
– pose a sufficiently narrow, interesting and focused research question,
– provide as many as possible facts, data, graphs, quotes, tables, etc.
– make an argument with reference to empirical evidence, legal texts and secondary literature,
– reference scrupulously all used primary and secondary sources, and
– be strictly analytical (rather than conversational, political, philosophical, elliptical etc.).
The final versions of the paper should be submitted in English, but can be also submitted earlier in Ukrainian, German or Russian, for a first preliminary assessment. It should have a length between 7,000 and 12,000 words. Please, send your paper as a WORD document, and list references by using WORD’s footnote function.
The papers’ formal style, references and footnotes should follow the example of this text:
The transliteration of Cyrillic words should follow the rules of this table:
We will not accept papers for review that still need extensive content-wise, linguistic or/and stylistic editing.
Authors of those papers that were accepted for publication should send the paper’s final, approved, ready-for-print version by 1 November 2019. They should be in native-level English, formulated in academic style, and thoroughly edited as well as formatted (quotations, references, subheadings, transliteration). 
The volume will be published with ibidem-Verlag at Stuttgart & Hannover as well as distributed, outside Europe, by Columbia University Press at New York as well as other distribution networks and bookshops, like Gazelle Book Services.
If successfully accepted and published by JSPPS, we will later offer you republication of your paper in a collected volume within this larger project “Political Investigations and Legal Assessments of Russia’s Annexation of Crimea in 2014” to be co-edited by Agata Kleczkowska.
