Call for Papers: chapters for first volume of the publication titled “Three Revolutions. Between mobilization and change”

Following the international symposium “Three Revolutions: Portraits of Ukraine” held at the College of Europe (Natolin Campus) on 28 February – 1 March 2017, we We are delighted to invite interested authors to send their proposed presentations based on current research which has not yet been published for the final book publication.

The primary focus of the book is the three Ukrainian Revolutions as we have defined them: the Revolution on Granite (1990), the Orange Revolution (2004-2005) and the Revolution of Dignity (2013-2014). The publication will show that there are similarities of the three protest actions, commonly referred to as the Maidan (but which go well beyond the main square in Kyiv). The three revolutions also reveal a certain resemblance in terms of form and methods used, but also – importantly – the participation of the same people. All these factors indicate a certain continuation of the revolutionary experience which can be observed in modern Ukraine and this is the primary topic of the book

Editors: Dr Paweł Kowal; Prof. Georges Mink; Dr Iwona Reichardt
