The Whitaker Institute & the J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics at NUI Galway is honoured to host an online event on Reconstructing the Economy of Ukraine at 6.00 p.m. (Irish time) on Tuesday, 26 April.
The main speaker is Professor Tymofiy Mylovanov, President of Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) and Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Pittsburgh. He served as Minister of Economic Development, Trade, and Agriculture in Ukraine from 2019 to 2020. Professor Mylovanov will be joined by Professor Barry Eichengreen who is the George C. Pardee & Helen N. Pardee Chair and Distinguished Professor of Economics and Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and has served as a Senior Policy Advisor to the International Monetary Fund.
Reconstructing the economy of Ukraine will be a long challenging process. Reconstructing the broken hearts and spirits of everybody affected by this dreadful war will take even longer. We are very honoured to be also joined by the distinguished Canadian novelist and poet, Anne Michaels. Anne’s great novel, Fugitive Pieces, brilliantly and poignantly explores the enduring impact of war, an impact summarised in her line that ‘there is nothing a man will not do to one another, nothing that a man will not do for another’.
