Ukraine, EU and Russia: the Shifting Boundaries of Order

Kataryna Wolczuk (University of Birmingham)

This lecture will analyse EU-Ukraine relations by looking at different types of boundaries of order – various disjunction that the EU (de-)constructs with non-EU countries in Europe, as argued by Michael Smith. The focus will be on geopolitical, legal and cultural boundaries.  Particular attention will be drawn to the role of the domestic regime in Ukraine and the role of Russia in re-shaping EU’s relations with Ukraine. While doing so the seminar aims to dispel many prevailing oversimplifications and misinterpretations regarding EU-Ukraine-Russia relations, drawing on long-term and comparative research on EU’s eastern neighbourhood and Eurasian integration processes.
