Editorial Board

The Journal of Ukrainian Politics and Society (JUPS) is one of the first peer-reviewed journals in English that aims to aid the development of social sciences in Ukraine. Our Editorial Board consists of world-renowned experts on Ukraine as well as exceptional emerging scholars. The journal is published by the Krytyka Institute, the scholarly arm of Krytyka, which also consists of a journal, a publishing house, and an online platform. 

Our vision is to embed the study of Ukraine in broader regional, international and transnational processes. In pursuing this goal, we hope to examine Ukraine’s social, economic and political transformations in comparative perspective as a part of larger macro-systemic, political, economic, legal, historical and social dynamics.
