[Extern] Postcolonial Perspectives on Ukraine’s EU Integration: Moving a Periphery Toward the Center of the World Economy?

Öffentlicher Abendvortrag

Ukraine’s integration into the European Union will intertwine with the processes of Ukraine’s war-time resilience and post-war reconstruction. Thus, it will go far beyond conventional candidate’s compliance with the EU’s rules and standards and will be aimed at modernizing Ukraine’s economy, promoting its liberation from post-colonial Soviet dependencies and enhancing its further internationalization into the global economy. What developmental effects on Ukraine’s economic and governance structures are to expect in the process of the EU’s accession? In turn, what could be Ukraine’s contribution to enhancing European economic security in times of geo-economic rivalries?
