Milking the EU cash cow

"Dublin Review of Books" says contagion of nationalism and xenophobia not restricted to central Europe; "Kultura Liberalna" speaks to Wolfgang Streeck about the future of the European peace project; in "openDemocracy", Cas Mudde considers EU sanctions against both Poland and Hungary; "Esprit" looks at how violence spreads in a globalized world; "Res Publica Nowa" analyses banker's madness; "Kulturos barai" sees straight through the misleading trade-off between security and freedom; "L'Homme" revisits gendered images in Cold War visual culture; and "Genero" looks to playwrights Oliver Frljic and Dino Mustafic for an antidote to Yugonostalgia.

Sofi Oksanen

A lion in a cage

On the Finlandization of Europe

To safeguard its sovereignty after World War II, Finland did what it could to please the Soviet Union. The strategy now known as "Finlandization" haunts Europe today, writes Sofi Oksanen, as Russia focuses on expanding its sphere of influence. [Ukrainian version added] [more]

Enda O'Doherty

The last chapter

Go out to your local bookshop, advises Enda O'Doherty, and get in close with those Books You Haven't Read, the Books To Read Next Summer and The Books To Fill Out Those Small Gaps That Are Still There On Your Shelves. Don't come away empty-handed. They may not be there forever. [Ukrainian version added] [more]

Oksana Forostyna

Howl

The works of Somalian-born activist and writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali show that the civilizational jump is incompatible with clan ethics, writes Oksana Forostyna of "Krytyka" (Ukraine). And given that Somalia is already a synonym for "failed state", time is of the essence in solving the Ukraine crisis. [more]

Volodymyr Sklokin

Turning public

Historians and public intellectuals in post-Soviet Ukraine

As scholars, historians must discover the truth about the past, writes Volodymyr Sklokin. But following the Ukrainian intellectual community's transformation after 1991, Ukrainian historians have also begun to find their feet as intellectuals responsible for sustaining a public sphere. [more]

25.02.2015


Stephen Velychenko

An open letter to Oliver Stone

In December 2014, the American film director Oliver Stone interviewed the former president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych; and then argued that events on the Maidan last winter were the product of CIA involvement. Historian Stephen Velychenko responds. [more]

14.01.2015


Oksana Forostyna

About things certain and uncertain

Every system has its flaws and every flaw can be exploited any time. Hence the permanent need for updates. But as Russia takes its revenge in eastern Ukraine, what does the future hold? Oksana Forostyna remains optimistic about the chances of modest success, at the very least. [more]

01.10.2014


Volodymyr Yermolenko

Dreams of Europe

There are two Europes, writes Volodymyr Yermolenko: a Europe of rules and regulations, and a Europe founded upon faith in the European idea. And as events in Ukraine show, the European idea extends well beyond the formal frontiers of the European Union. [more]

02.06.2014


Peter Pomerantsev

Cracks in the Kremlin matrix

Peter Pomerantsev enters the matrix of managed democracy that underpins postmodern dictatorship in Russia. He discovers a society of pure spectacle where, amid fake parties, fake opposition, fake scandals and fake action, political technologists turn (almost) everything into PR. [German and Ukrainian versions added] [more]

19.02.2014


Szabolcs Pogonyi

After democratic transition

Will democracy in east-central Europe survive the economic crisis? Are democratic institutions and the middle classes strong enough to counter the authoritarian Left and Right? The real test for east-central European democracies is yet to come, writes Szabolcs Pogonyi. [Russian version added] [more]

20.08.2014


Frederik Stjernfelt

Gagging for God

What if the attempt earlier this year on the life of a Danish Islam critic proves to be yet another instance of a concentrated assault on free expression by fundamentalist believers? Frederik Stjernfelt slams the critics of Enlightenment values for their complacency. [Ukrainian version added] [more]

29.01.2014


Tatiana Zhurzhenko

Yulia Tymoshenko's two bodies

She was once the female icon of the Orange Revolution. Lately, the drama of repressed Ukrainian democracy has been staged upon the tortured body of the imprisoned opposition leader. But how much longer can this postmodern political spectacle go on? [Ukrainian version added] [more]

20.11.2013


Marian J. Rubchak

The charge of the pink brigade

FEMEN and the campaign for gender justice in Ukraine

Is FEMEN the precursor of a bold new protest pattern, or has it been reduced to an organization of exhibitionists? As long as gender injustices multiply in Ukraine, the strength of FEMEN's message remains undiminished, argues Marian Rubchak. [more]

Mykola Riabchuk

Metaphors of betrayal

Whatever one thinks about the "centuries-old affinity" between Ukraine and Russia, any western policy towards Ukraine that downplays the issue of values is fundamentally flawed, writes Mykola Riabchuk. [more]

26.03.2010


Tatiana Zhurzhenko

The geopolitics of memory

The controversy around the statue of the Soviet soldier in Tallinn in April 2007 provided a striking demonstration that memory politics is less about the communist past than about future political and economic hegemony on the European continent. [Swedish version added] [more]
