Ukraine’s hidden tragedy

‘Ukraine’s hidden tragedy: understanding the outcomes of population displacement from the country’s war torn regions’ is a research project of interdisciplinary team from the University of Birmingham, University of Oxford and Ukrainian Catholic University.

It examines how ethnicity, language and regional-local identity interact within the context of political reform in Ukraine. The project’s main aim is to find out to what extent, and how, current Ukrainian decentralisation, education and language policies affect social cohesion among ethnocultural groups in two very different border regions. 

Project is funded by the Research Council of Norway (NORRUSS Plus Programme)
