The International Scientific Conference: The Ukrainian Crisis and Its Significance for International Security

The International Scientific Conference:
"The Ukrainian Crisis and Its Significance

for International Security"

Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski, November 19th-20th, 2015

CALL FOR CONFERENCE

Ongoing – since 2013 – crisis in Ukraine together with political and military engagement of the Russian Federation siding with pro-Russian separatists, gained international dimension. Annexation of Crimea by Russia as well as initiation of "rebellious war" in Eastern Ukraine were the Kremlin's response for occidental orientation of Ukraine's foreign policy represented by Euromaidan camp. Concurrently, according to some analysts, Russian policy toward Ukraine is just a stage in realization of a broader concept aiming to restoration of the Russian hegemony in post-Soviet area.

The consecutive phases of the Ukrainian crisis confirm the collapse of the international security system on the axis Russia-NATO and, even wider, Russia-the West that has bound for over two decades. The expansive policy of the Kremlin and violation of Ukraine's territorial integrity does not remain without an influence also on national security systems of individual NATO member states, particularly the Baltic republics and Poland. International balance of power in the Middle Eastern Europe, that took form after the breakup of the Soviet Union, during the past several months simply ceased to be in force.

The subject matter of the impact of the Ukrainian crisis on international security system requires scrupulous and multidimensional analyses. The organizers of the International Scientific Conference "The Ukrainian Crisis and Its Significance for International Security" invite all interested political scientists, economists, pundits and experts in defence and security studies as well as the post-Soviet issues for considerations over political, military and economic aspects of the Ukrainian crisis in the context of international security, its conditions and threats.

Three principal panels of the conference are expected:

Political panel

In this panel the questions regarding political dimension of the Ukrainian crisis will be contained. In particular, we suggest such problems like:

  • an issue of Ukraine's neutrality and its non-aligned status in geopolitical context;
  • Poland toward the Ukrainian crisis;
  • Belarus toward the Ukrainian crisis;
  • Western states in the face of the Ukrainian crisis;
  • a question of nationalisms in Russia and Ukraine;
  • an impact of the Ukrainian crisis for the image of Russia abroad;
  • pro-Western inclination of Ukraine's foreign policy (prospects of Ukraine's accession to NATO and the EU);
  • an influence of the Ukrainian crisis on changes within Russian and Ukrainian power establishment;
  • an impact of the Ukrainian crisis on evolution of Russian political system and its practice of wielding authority and administering.

Military panel

This panel will encompass problems concerning military dimension of Ukrainian crisis. In particular, we suggest an analysis of the following issues:

  • NATO's stance on the Ukrainian crisis;
  • an influence of war in Ukraine on the NATO evolution (the reforms of the Alliance, strengthening of NATO's Eastern flank);
  • an impact of the Ukrainian crisis on Poland's defence doctrine;
  • the Ukrainian crisis and the hybrid warfare;
  • the Ukrainian crisis and the propaganda and psychological warfare;
  • conflict in Donbass and treatment of prisoners-of-war;
  • intelligence and counter-intelligence aspect of the Ukrainian crisis;
  • a question of weapon supplies for Ukraine;
  • armed forces involved in the conflict.

Economic panel

In this panel the questions relating to economic dimension of Ukrainian crisis will be discussed. Especially, we suggest an analysis of such issues as:

  • short-, mid- and long-term effects of the Ukrainian crisis on economies of Ukraine, Russia and Belarus;
  • an influence of the Ukrainian crisis on economic security of Poland;
  • an impact of sanctions on the economic relations between the EU and Russia;
  • the Ukrainian crisis and re-orientation of Ukraine's trade from Russia to the West;
  • the Ukrainian crisis and "oil conspiracy";
  • post-revolutionary economic reforms in Ukraine;
  • a problem of the severance of cooperation of military-industrial complexes of Russia and Ukraine.
