Research Associate: Ukraine in European Dialogue
Mariia Shynkarenko is a Research Associate in our Ukraine in European Dialogue program. She is a political scientist, who specializes on questions of resistance, nationalism, and identity. Specifically, her research focuses on identity and resistance of the Crimean Tatars both historically and contemporary. She is interested in instrumentalization of identities, indigeneity, people’s power, and resistance in contexts of occupation and authoritarian regimes. As such, she relies extensively on qualitative methodology, particularly ethnography, discourse and historical analysis. Mariia received her PhD from the New School for Social Research in 2023. Her work has been supported at various stages by The New School for Social Research, International Center for Nonviolent Conflict, New York University, University of Toronto, and Alberta University.
