An expert panel of Case Western Reserve University faculty will present an analysis of Russia’s war in Ukraine one month after the invasion. The event will take place Thursday, March 24, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Ballroom A of the Tinkham Veale University Center. Doors will open at 6:45 p.m.

Panelists are:

  • Kelly McMann, professor of political science, who will open the event with an assessment of domestic and international pressures to end the war in Ukraine.
  • David Clingingsmith, associate professor of economics, who will provide an economic perspective on the sanctions against Russia and the war more broadly.
  • Ken Ledford, associate professor of history, who will ground the current conflict in the history of guerilla resistance in the Ukraine’s 1917-22 war of independence and during the Second World War, when the country was occupied by the Germans and then liberated by the Red Army.
  • Roman Sheremeta, associate professor of economics, who will discuss resistance in Ukraine, drawing on both his scholarly work and experience as a Ukrainian citizen and academic leader in Ukraine.

This event is sponsored by the Departments of Economics, History, and Political Science and the Center for Policy Studies.
