New Publication: "The Evolution of the Foreign Policy of Ukraine: External Actors and Domestic Factors"
Dr. Karina Shyrokykh, alumna of the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies, has recently published an article on "The Evolution of the Foreign Policy of Ukraine: External Actors and Domestic Factors" in the international journal "Europe-Asia Studies" (Taylor & Francis). The special issues deals with "The Evolution of Foreign Policy in the Post-Soviet Space".
Karina Shyrokykh is a political scientist and alumna of the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies. She defended her Ph.D. at Ludwig-Maximilians Universität in Munich in 2017. In her research she is especially interested in external democracy promotion, authoritarian diffusion, transgovernmental networks with a particular emphasis on the European Neighbourhood Policy, and disinformation in Russian foreign policy.
By focusing on the role of, and interplay between, external actors and domestic factors, the present essay explores the evolution of Ukraine’s foreign policy. It argues that this policy has been shaped to a significant degree by positive and negative externalities, being a response to domestic developments as well as external challenges and opportunities. Acknowledging the importance of cost–benefit calculations by domestic actors, the essay does furthermore explore the role of norms and values in forming Ukraine’s foreign policy preferences.
