The Center for Ideas and Society invites the campus community and the public to a special forum on the war in Ukraine. Four experts from UCR's departments of History and Political Science will discuss how the conflict between Russia and the Ukraine could escalate into a full-blown war of historical dimensions. Why does Putin take such a gamble? What are the historical reasons behind Russia's claims on Ukrainian territory? Which economic and political interests are involved? How do Ukrainian and Russian cultures differ, what do they have in common? And: Are there ways out of this war - before it spreads?

Discussants include:

Paul D'Anieri (Political Science)
Jana Grittersova (Political Science)
Georg Michels (History)
Kiril Tomoff (History)

Moderated by Jeanette Kohl, Co-Director, Center for Ideas and Society
