Russia’s War on Ukraine: A New Attack on Peace, Rights, and Sovereignty

Friday, March 4, 2022 at 4:30pm

Virtual Event

The Russian invasion of Ukraine constitutes the first major land war in Europe in decades. It threatens lives across the region, the post–Cold War international order—and the stability of the global economy, as the United States, European allies, and countries around the world have imposed severe sanctions on Russia and supplied varying levels of aid to Ukraine.

In cooperation with the Cornell Jeb E. Brooks School of Public Policy and College of Arts and Sciences, the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies has convened this expert panel to respond to the injustice and massive violation of sovereignty, human rights, and peace.

Join us for a wide-ranging discussion of Russian domestic and foreign policy, Ukrainian nationhood and security response, human rights and migration, economic sanctions’ impact, and international and European consequences of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The panel includes Dmitry Bykov, a Russian dissident and Open Society University Network threatened scholar sponsored by Global Cornell and hosted by the Einaudi Center's Institute for European Studies (IES), in partnership with Ithaca City of Asylum.
