Towards a Political Economy of Ukraine

Stuttgart, 06.10.2020 (lifePR) – The essays in the book „Towards a Political Economy“ explore the major developments, both domestic and international, that shaped the first quarter-century of Ukraine’s independence:
The simultaneous construction of a nation-state and the privatization of its economy; a formal democratization of the political process alongside the capture of state institutions by big business oligarchs; their efforts to gain social acceptance at home while maneuvering between competing Russian, EU, and American projects to hegemonize the region; the impact of the financial crises of 1997 and 2008 on Ukrainian society and the national economy’s place in the world market; the growing inequality of society, the mass revolts in 2004 and 2014 against corruption and injustice; and the beginning of Russian military intervention in Ukraine.
