Serhii Plokhii



The project examines the reaction to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the West and the impact of the accident on international relations at the final stage of the Cold War. Its realization depends on the access to the IAEA archives in Vienna, which Plokhii plans to research during his stay at the IWM. Depending on the outcome of his archival work, the project will result either in the publication of a book or a series of articles dealing with the international aspects of the Chernobyl accident.

This is a Andrei Sheptyts'kyi Senior Fellowship as part of the Ukraine in European Dialogue program. These fellowships are offered by invitation to outstanding international scholars who have demonstrated longstanding intellectual solidarity with Ukraine.
