Niagara Forum: Panel on Ukraine


This forum on the current situation in Ukraine will expose vastly differing opinions and insights from professionals in a multitude of fields. During the panel discussion, the audience will be able to interact with the consul general of Ukraine, a distinguished scholar of post-soviet political systems, as well as the President of the Euromaidan Journalists Collective who will participate via livestream direct from Kyiv, Ukraine. This event provides the opportunity to develop an intimate understanding of the situation in a highly personalized manner that is not possible through mass media.

The discussion will provide fresh views on the ever-changing crisis that has led to violence and death. Controversial topics in the news will be addressed, such as the concept of an east-west divide among Ukrainians, political implications, and the possibility of a turn to democracy will also be addressed. This engaging forum is a unique opportunity for the audience to personally discuss how the history of Ukraine has led to momentous conflict, with its future on the precipice of change.
