Breaking News: The Russian Invasion of Ukraine and Its Consequences

Fri, September 16, 2:00 to 3:30pm, TBA

Session Submission Type: Roundtable

Session Description

The invasion by Russia of Ukraine violates international sovereignty as understood since the end of World War II, and the behavior of Russian soldiers raises issues of war crimes. This panel examines a series of seminal questions surrounding these events. What are the causes behind the Russian invasion of Ukraine? What is the impact of the war on Ukrainian society? Did NATO, EU, and the United States respond effectively and timely? How does Ukrainian society, especially women, resist Russia's aggression? What are the consequences of the attack and sanctions on Russia? Has digital information and media changed the effects of war on the international system? Finally, what does this tragedy mean for the legal basis of the post-World War II system?
