Myths of The Ukrainian Crisis: Shades of Grey of Conflict and Crisis by Olga Onuch (University of Manchester)

  • Seminar Room G, Manor Road Building Oxford, OX1 3UQ

This event is open to the public and a light lunch will be served outside the seminar room at 12.50pm.

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.
