The Euromaidan and the violence in eastern Ukraine have become the center of political, popular, and scholarly attention across the globe. At the same time, the war and its impact on Ukraine’s state and society cannot be reduced to the analysis of violence and armed struggle alone. This event offers a broader analysis of the Ukrainian revolution and war by putting the events in historical and sociological perspective, analyzing the role of historical memory during wartime, and understanding violence as a state-building mechanism.

Dominique Arel is Associate Professor and Chair of Ukrainian Studies at the School of Political Studies, University of Ottawa.

Keith Darden is Associate Professor at the School of International Service, American
University.

Georgi Derluguian is Professor of Social Research and Public Policy, New York University Abu Dhabi.

Evgeny Finkel is Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Affairs, George Washington University.
