UKRAINE-EU COOPERATION IN CRISIS MANAGEMENT AND DISASTER RISK REDUCTION: SHARING BEST PRACTICES,

BUILDING EFFECTIVE CAPABILITIES

 

Cooperation in crisis management and disaster risk reduction (natural, man-made disasters, terrorism, conflict and conflict-related emergencies) is a priority and thematic platform of the Eastern Partnership and an important sphere of cooperation between Ukraine and the EU within the Ukraine-EU Action Plan, but it is an almost completely neglected topic in the academic curricula on EU/European integration/security studies in Ukraine and other countries of the Eastern Partnership. Similarly, very little research has been carried out on diplomatic and political/institutional aspects of this subject, which further diminishes the prospects of high-quality modules and courses and effective education and training of current and future academics and professionals working in this area. By organising a workshop bringing together national and international experts from a variety of professional backgrounds with young scholars and advanced postgraduate students and publishing the proceedings of the event, a contribution will be made to improving the breadth and depth of higher education provision in the area, a Ukraine-based subject-specific expert network will be established and consolidated, and interaction between professionals in the area with academics will be enhanced to enable better-informed, evidence-based practice of effective and efficient crisis management and disaster risk reduction in Ukraine, the Eastern Neighbourhood and the EU.

The programme will be divided into 5 modules:

 

Module 1. Crisis Management of the European Union

Prof. Stefan Wolff, University of Birmingham, UK

 

Module 2. Organizational Overlap and Crisis Management

Dr. David Galbreath, University of Bath, UK

 

Module 3. Cooperative Mechanisms for Nuclear Counterterrorism in the Wider Black Sea Region

Dr. Sergei Konoplyov, Harvard University, USA

 

Module 4. Sociology of conflicts, crises and catastrophes

Prof. Anton Oleinik, Memorial University, Canada

 

Module 5. The Early Warning and Crisis Prevention Mechanisms

Prof. Tetyana Malyarenko, Donetsk State University of Management
