It's been one year since Russia launched an all-out assault on Ukraine. A panel of GW historians including Professor Hugh Agnew, Professor Gregg Brazinsky, Professor Hope M. Harrison, and Professor James Hershberg will assess how historical factors have influenced the war and the responses of various countries (including Ukraine, Russia, the US, China, and Germany) to the war. They will also discuss what history can tell us about options for how this war may end. Professor Daniel Schwartz, History Department Chair, will moderate the event.
The panel is hosted by IERES, the Petrach Program on Ukraine, the GW History Department, the University Seminar on Europe Since Covid-19, and the Sigur Center for Asian Studies.
