Ukrainian geopolitical fault-line cities: urban identities, geopolitics and urban policy

 

This project explores urban policy issues in Ukraine’s "geopolitical fault-line cities", focusing on policy areas that are most exposed to the country’s geopolitical and foreign policy choices. There are two main goals, one scientific and the other policy-oriented. Using the examples of five case study cities in southeastern Ukraine – Kharkiv, Dnipro, Odessa, Sloviansk/Kramatorsk, Mariupol and Luhansk (via Starobilsk) – the scientific goal is to advance the concept of the geopolitical fault-line city and to contribute to the knowledge on conflict in divided or polarized cities. The main policy-related goal is to explore the urban social and identity policy challenges confronting southeastern Ukrainian geopolitical fault-line cities. 

Project funded by the Reasearch Council of Norway
