European Societies: call for papers “Understanding Ukrainian Society Before and After the Russian Invasion”

Si è aperta una call for papers per uno Special Issue di “European Societies” dal titolo “Understanding Ukrainian Society Before and After the Russian Invasion”, curato da Tamara Martsenyuk (NationalUniversityofKyiv-MohylaAcademy) e Tymofii Brik (KyivSchoolofEconomics).

“The resistance of Ukraine against the Russian invasion has surprised politicians, scholars, pundits, and public intellectuals in many countries. The sociological scholarship was not prepared to address and explain this resistance. Ukrainian society has been understudied and underrepresented in mainstream sociological scholarship. Yet, local studies have shown that Ukrainian society has changed significantly after the Euromaidan protests of 2013–14 (also known as the Revolution of Dignity) and after Russia’s annexation of Crimea and part of Donbas in 2014. The outbreak of war in 2014 caused numerous deaths among armed forces and civilians, while internally displacing millions of Ukrainians. These tragic events also forged a new civil society, reshaped government, and increased the professionalism of the military. A new wave of volunteers and NGOs profoundly shaped individual participation in social and political spheres. A number of crucial reforms were implemented in different spheres: education, health, public procurement, armed forces, governance, etc.

We consider manuscripts that come in one of three forms:
