(Co-editors: A. Yatsyk and A. Makarychev) The conflict in Ukraine and Russia's annexation of Crimea has undoubtedly been a pivotal moment for policy makers and military planners in Europe and beyond.

(Co-editors: A. Makarychev and A. Yatsyk) This book focuses on the recent political trajectories within the Baltic Sea Region from one of the success stories of regionalism in Europe to a potential area of military confrontation between Russia and NATO.

(Book chapter) (Co-author: A. Makarychev) Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the military insurgency in Ukraine’s eastern provinces triggered political and academic debates on various issues related to post-Soviet borderlands, above all those populated by Russian-speakers and culturally gravitating towards Russia. In this context the Estonian city of Narva became one of the hottest nodal points in heated international discussions over the...

More specifically, we...

The authors use in-depth expert interviews with policy activists, cultural entrepreneurs, analysts and governmental officers, conducted in...
(European Neighbourhood Policy) (Co-author: A. Makarychev) The chapter addresses a collision of different policies and strategies initiated, pursued and implemented by EU member states towards Ukraine as a co-host of the UEFA 2012 Cup. Two countries are of particular interest for this study—Poland, as the co-organizer of this mega-event, and Germany, as the most powerful European country that engaged most actively with Ukraine on many policy lines...
(Nomos) (Co-author: A. Yatsyk) This book addresses Estonian, Ukrainian and Georgian identities which have developed against the backdrop of Russia’s neo-imperialist policies and the EU’s normative projection of power. With the decreasing explanatory value of the “post-Soviet” frame, the authors propose the concept of borderlands in order to bring together a group of countries located at the point where different cultural, religious...
