Student Panel Discussion on the Conflict in the Donbass Region

13 December 2018

In the morning of 13th December, students of UCL’s ‘Violent and Non-Violent Conflict” module participated in a panel discussion on the armed conflict in Ukraine’s Donbass region.


Moderated by the module tutors Nils Metternich and Manuel Vogt, both members of UCL’s Department of Political Science, the students discussed the current situation in the region and, in particular, different policy options to solve the conflict. The panel discussion was the result of a group case study project that took place over the course of the final three weeks of the course. In this project, students worked together in small groups to analyse a specific contemporary conflict of their choice, consider different policy options to end the conflict, and elaborate a set of concrete policy recommendations.
