Democratic War? The Geopolitics of Democracy and the Conflict over Ukraine

The end of communism was expected to usher in a “democratic peace” in Europe, but by 2013, Russia saw democratization in Ukraine as a threat worth fighting over. How did democracy become a source of conflict, and what are the implications?

Paul D’Anieri studies and teaches international politics, and has written extensively on Ukrainian politics and relations between Ukraine and Russia. He is currently writing a book on the long-term sources of the war between Russia and Ukraine. He spent over a decade in leadership positions at three universities, and has written as well on the links between budgeting and the academic mission.

Lunch will be served. Open to the public.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
