Speaker: Dr Olga Onuch
Chair:  Dr Tomila Lankina

This lecture will trace the trajectory of events that followed the “Ukrainian Crisis” and unpack the six central myths that were reproduced in policy and academic commentary and why they impede not only our understanding of the roots of the crisis but also possible solutions to it.

Olga Onuch (@oonuch) is an Assistant Professor in Politics at the University of Manchester and an Associate Fellow at Nuffield College (University of Oxford). She is the author of Mapping Mobilization: Understanding Revolutionary Moments in the Ukraine and Argentina (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014).

Tomila Lankina is an Associate Professor in the Department of International Relations at LSE.

The Department of International Relations (@LSEIRDept) is now in its 88th year, making us one of the oldest as well as largest in the world.
