    In January, we welcome Lala Zinkevych of Ukraine, who joins us via the Humphrey Fellows program at SU’s Maxwell School. The topic of her talk will be “How to Define a Nation’s Identity: The Story of Ukraine.” Since early 2014, Ukraine has been going through a staggering turmoil of rises and falls – change of government, Russian aggression, economic transformations, political turbulence.  However, these challenges are nothing but a background for something much more significant for the Ukrainian nation, and that is a revival of the national identity. Ms. Zinkevych will discuss: What happened to the mindset of Ukrainians when they changed their ideological course from Russia towards Europe? What is a new national identity of Ukraine and how does it influences social, political and economic trends in Ukraine and Europe? How has a new national identity become a major driver for a change of the Ukrainian state?  Ms. Zinkevych is currently the Head of Strategic Communications and Public Affairs Department of the Center for Strategic Communications StratCom Ukraine, a leading non-profit institution, providing a capacity building support for the Ukrainian government. She is an executive member of the policy team of the Ministry of Information Policy working on crises response capacity building, and the Advisor to the Reforms Office of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
