“Re:Thinking Europe through The School of Kyiv”
Kiev / October 24th, 2015
What are the external and internal borders of today’s Europe? And what do these borders say about Europe and “Europeanness”? Nowhere else are these questions felt so deeply and directly than in one of Europe’s “border” areas, Ukraine: a country geographically located at the borders of Europe, but ultimately central in the continuing process of defining Europe and European identity, both in the past and in the present. What can we learn about “Europeanness”, European culture, and the nation state from the crisis in Ukraine?

Departing from the current situation in Ukraine, “The School of Kyiv” addresses burning issues relevant for European and Ukrainian citizens and imagines egalitarian and alternative futures.
