The seminar will tackle the following topics and revolve around the discussion of a variety of interdisciplinary economic, philosophical, and political-science questions:

*Majority governance & minority rights: collective decision making in a heterogeneous society

Under what conditions should declarations of independence and sovereignty be considered legitimate? Could a more federal governance structure mitigate tensions among different ethnic groups? What is the rationale for avoiding or promoting a two-state solution?

*The role of non-state actors and the civil society in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict

What is/was the role of the media, think tanks, the church, organized crime, NGOs and GONGOs in the conflict and the events that lead to it? What should be their role in mitigating the conflict? To what extend does the Ukrainian experience deliver an explanation for the current tough stance of the Hungarian and Polish governments towards NGOs?

*The impact of the territorial conflict on the transition economy of Ukraine

How do the newly erected barriers of trade within the territory of Ukraine shape the national economy? How do the domestic refugees impact the development of the economy? Is the impact of the conflict-led demise of the Ukrainian hryvnia a blessing or a curse for the national economy?

*Governance & the economic impact of corruption

To what extend does corruption distort the functioning of the market mechanism and Pareto efficiency? What are the best law-based remedies for corruption? What should be the role of informal institutions (such as social norms, moral rules, and conventions) in mitigating corruption?

*Competition Policy, Market Failure, and Ethics of Business in non-ideal conditions

What is the state of competition policy in Ukraine? Can the institutional framework be improved? In concrete, how can transaction costs and market failure be mitigatedCan business ethics help to mitigate market failure in non-ideal institution settings?
