Andrej Krickovic, assistant professor of world economy and international affairs at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia, will present a lecture titled “The War in Ukraine” on Sunday, May 3, at 7 p.m., in the Fillius Events Barn. Krickovic’s lecture is sponsored by the Government Department and is free and open to the public.
Krickovic did his postgraduate program in Russian foreign policy at Harvard University and received his Ph.D. in politology at the University of California, Berkeley. At Harvard, Krickovic worked on regional integration in the post-Soviet space. He is currently working on Russian foreign policy, Russia and its relationships with international institutions, as well as research on ties that do not bind Russian to the international liberal order. His research argues against the idea that there is an international liberal order that can really restrain rising states so that there will be a peaceful transition to a multipolar system.
