As millions of Ukrainians take risks for the sake of a European future for their country, a historic opportunity presents itself to create a platform for dialogue between Ukrainian scholars, intellectuals and activists and their counterparts in Europe and North America. For Ukraine, intellectual exchange with the West is crucial for the success of reform efforts and for building a modern, sovereign state governed by the rule of law. But Europe, too, has something to learn from Ukrainians, and not only lessons of civic courage, self-organization and mass volunteer movements. Ukraine is no longer a terra incognita
; it is a source of insights into politics and civil society that might well be relevant to the European present and future. Understanding Ukraine and the nature of the current conflict with Russia is vital for the future of the European endeavor. The project Ukraine in European Dialogue
seeks to contribute to this exchange.
