    The Feudalization of Ukraine?
    Balázs Jarábik December 18, 2014

    Ukraine may be heading not towards federalization or decentralization, but feudalization. To avoid this, the focus should not only be on central, macro-level reforms but also on building civil society to make those larger reforms sustainable.

    Moisés Naím December 6, 2014 Atlantic

    The Ebola epidemic, ISIS’s ascent, and Vladimir Putin’s belligerence may be three of the most disruptive developments of 2014, but in 2015 they could all lose their potency.

    Putin Is Merkel’s (and Europe’s) Biggest Security Challenge
    Judy Dempsey November 17, 2014

    As European diplomacy with Russia fails, Angela Merkel’s options are limited. She and other Western leaders must accept that they are in for the long haul.

    Frozen Donbas?
    Balázs Jarábik November 17, 2014 Русский

    In Donbas, there is mostly a tactical operation aimed at reinforcing rebel positions, not preparation for a full-fledged war. The West may not have a better solution than to accept to freeze Donbas for the winter.

    Balázs Jarábik November 14, 2014 Visegrad Revue

    Ukraine’s state-owned energy giant is a source of corruption that oligarchs and Russia can exploit. The EU should consider becoming a major stakeholder in the network.

    Ukraine’s “European” Parliament
    Gwendolyn Sasse October 31, 2014

    The pro-European result of Ukraine’s parliamentary election paves the way for structural reforms, but it does not point toward a resolution of the conflict with Russia.

    Will Lustration Help or Hinder Ukrainian Reform?
    Yuval Weber October 29, 2014

    The Ukrainian government retains the prerogative to exclude violators of public trust from further government service while new political and economic institutions are built. It remains to be seen how lustration and anti-corruption laws will be implemented.
