Ukraine’s European Future

On 24 February 2022, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. It has had a profound impact on the country, creating an economic, security, and humanitarian crisis. At the same time, Russia’s actions also threaten the security and stability of Europe and the post-Cold War international order.

Through analysis, public events, expert workshops and other means, the EPC’s Ukraine European Future project will focus on:

  • Developments during and after the war, including the response, support (humanitarian, military, and economic aid, etc.) and policies and programmes of the EU and Ukraine’s other key Western allies (US, UK, Canada, etc.).
  • Short, medium, and long-term priorities for Ukraine-EU relations, such as monitoring political and economic reform in Ukraine, including its progress in meeting the criteria to start accession talks; the EU’s role in Ukraine’s reconstruction; reinforcing Ukraine’s energy security and green transition; sustainable economic prosperity and countering disinformation.
  • Support for Ukraine in its efforts to get justice for Russia’s war crimes and crimes against humanity.
  • The role of Ukrainian civil society in reinforcing national cohesion and resilience, and its potential to be the driving force behind the rebuilding of the country.
  • Different forms of security and defence cooperation, including future security guarantees for Ukraine and the future of the European security architecture.

Ukraine’s European Future Project is led by Amanda Paul, Senior Policy Analyst and Svitlana Taran, EPC-KBF Research Fellow. For further information on our work and opportunities to support it, please email or
