Media Advisory - Russia’s invasion of Ukraine: A panel discussion

Tuesday, April 19, 2022

Kingston, Ontario—To help us understand the origins and the impact of the crisis in Ukraine and around the world, Queen’s is hosting a virtual discussion with research experts in foreign policy and international law who will review the latest developments and answer some of the questions that are top of mind.

This free event, organized by alumni relations, will walk viewers through the complicated history of the relationship between Russia and Ukraine, the potential motivations for Russian President Vladimir Putin and what makes this war different than what we have seen in the past.

The three Queen’s panelists are:

  • Thomas Hughes (Post-Doctoral Fellow, Centre for International and Defence Policy) whose primary areas of research are on confidence-building, arms control, deterrence, and strategic culture.
  • Zsuzsa Csergő (Political Studies) who specializes in the study of nationalism in contemporary European politics, with expertise on post-communist Central and Eastern Europe. 
  • Nicolas Lamp (Faculty of Law and School of Policy Studies) whose current research focuses on competing narratives about the winners and losers in economic globalization.

This event will be moderated by Buzzfeed writer and CBC podcaster Elamin Abdelmahmoud, Artsci'11, and by and Steffonn Chan, Sc’07, Queen's Alumni Germany Branch representative. 

Date: April 20, 2022
