Re-interpreting European Security in the aftermath of Russia’s war in Ukraine

Xymena Kurowska, Associate Professor, Department of International Relations, Central European University

This course re-examines traditional, critical and emerging concepts and problematics of European security in the context of Russia’s war in Ukraine. It does so by situating the Ukrainian experience centre-stage and as co-constitutive of European security, not as derivative of epistemic frames and geopolitical agendas of other actors. The aim is accordingly re-interpret disciplinary and transnational discussions on security from the current regional perspective and with emphasis on global implications.
