The Russian invasion of Ukraine has sent Ukrainians fleeing for their lives and abruptly shifted geopolitics. Its ramifications go far beyond Europe and their extent is still unknown. As the events in Ukraine unfold, many questions arise:

  • How realistic and dangerous is the possible escalation of a nuclear threat?
  • What does it mean for multilateral institutions like the EU and NATO? 
  • How will the war affect policy such as migration, defence, the economy, energy or sustainability?

Faculty and experts at the Hertie School offer insights into these pressing issues through analyses, research and public debate, which we have collected here for you. For more analysis and direct contact to our experts who cover various aspects of the war in Ukraine please reach out to our Centre for Fundamental Rights, Centre for International SecurityCentre for Sustainability, or the Jacques Delors Centre.
