Sommarhälsning 2017

Sommaren är här och de flesta av oss på UCRS går snart på semester.

Vi har nu lämnat en produktiv vår bakom oss och förberedelserna inför hösten är i full gång.

Under vårterminen har vi bland annat arrangerat sex stora internationella konferenser om ämnen så olika som geopolitiskt tänkande i postsovjetisk skönlitteratur och genuspolitik i Arktis. Terminen avslutade med en årlig konferens under titeln ”The Russian Revolution and Its Legacies: Taking Stock a Century Later” som hölls i Tartu i början på juni. Konferensen arrangerades i samarbete med universiteten i Tartu och Kent inom ramen för det treåriga ”TWINNING” projektet finansierat av EU:s ”Horizon 2020” programmet. Under den gångna terminen har ett flertal gästforskare från bland annat Ukraina, Kanada, Estland och Vitryssland vistats på Centrum. Slutligen har vi haft ett spännande och varierat seminarieprogram med forskare och praktiker som har hållit föredrag runt diverse teman – från kapitalism i Ryssland till partipolitik i Estland.

Höstens seminarieprogram kommer laddas upp på vår hemsida i augusti.   

Vi på Centret vill tacka alla som på olika sätt har varit involverade i våra aktiviteter under våren och vill önska alla en trevlig sommar! 

UCRS at the Second Annual Tartu Conference on Russian and East European Studies

On 4-6 June our colleagues took part in the Second Annual Tartu Conference on Russian and East European Studies. This year’s conference entitled “The Russian Revolution and Its Legacies: Taking Stock a Century Later” gathered experts in a whole variety of fields from comparative politics, international relations and economics to history, sociology, anthropology and cultural studies.  

The Tartu Conference is organized jointly by the Centre for EU-Russia Studies at the University of Tartu, the Global Europe Centre at the University of Kent, and the Uppsala Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Uppsala University. The conference is financially supported by the European Commission under a Horizon 2020 Twinning project entitled “Building Research Excellence in Russian and East European Studies at the Universities of Tartu, Uppsala and Kent" (UPTAKE).

World leading experts discuss recent development in Ukraine

On 18 and 19 May UCRS arranges a large-scale international conference "QUO VADIS UKRAINE? Taking Stock of a Quarter Century of Disappointment" where world-leading experts will discuss post Soviet developments in Ukraine. 

The purpose of the conference is to provide a multi-disciplinary outlook of Ukraine’s socio-economic and political development over its quarter-century independence history. Leading political scientists, historians, economists and sociologists from around the globe will draw on state-of-the-art research to explain driving forces, obstacles, and prospects of Ukraine’s state-building, democratic consolidation and economic restructuring.  

The conference will explore the interplay of history, institutions, and society as factors shaping Ukraine’s past and present, and will build on such analysis to develop an informed and evidence-based outlook of the country’s future, reflecting successes and failures of the Ukrainian reforms up to date.   

The conference will be a unique opportunity to learn from distinguished social scientists and who’s who in Ukrainian studies about a country in the heart of Europe with a 45 million population, which has become critically important for stability, security and democratic development in Central and Eastern Europe and beyond.
