Discussion on the topic “Ukraine in-between: classical and alternative models of globalization” at Ye bookstore.

Ye bookstore and UISGDA invite you to the discussion on the topic “Ukraine in-between: classical and alternative models of globalization”. The event will take place at 46 Khreshchatyk str., Kiev(Ye bookstore), on 25 August at 18:30.

Classical modern civilization, values of which were considered universal and inviolable, is now losing the status of the only player and an arbitrator. There are more and more alternative projects, that claim to be a global supplier of values - China, Russia, Turkey, Iran and other countries don’t agree with being recipients of the Western model. However, there are alternative integrating models inside the West, examples of which can be considered Brexit and Intermarium. 

Therefore, our state is on the verge of two dimensions at the same time. First of all, Ukraine is located on the border of Europe and Eurasia and each of the potential projects of integration wants to involve such an important strategic area. Secondly, the need for independence in the modern world of globalizations for their projects might lead to isolationism and deprivation of subjectivity. The situation becomes more complicated because of the lack of a state strategy for further integration both towards West European area (by passing by the Central Eastern European one) and towards a global world in general. Consequently, Ukraine found itself in the situation in-between, where you can stay for a long time but with a risk of permanent degradation.During the event we will try to define perspectives of Ukraine in terms of competition between classical and alternative models of globalization in order to identify its place in a new global world.
