Publ.: 'Ukraine on its Way to Europe. Interim Results of the Orange Revolution'

Zum Buch:

The Orange Revolution in November/December 2004 has unambiguously
determined the future orientation of Ukraine: Joining the European
Union has obtained top priority. ?Europe? is understood here not as a
geographical or historical term, but as a normative concept including
respect for human and civil rights, rule of law, division of powers,
parliamentary democracy, open and pluralistic society and so on. The
publication has two aims: a critical analysis and evaluation of the
efforts of Ukraine under President Yushchenko to bring about a change
in direction toward a rapprochement to the European Union (2005-
2008), and the identification of cultural constants of the Ukrainian
society which either hinder or are conducive to the rapprochement.
