Timothy Garton Ash - on Ukraine’s role in Europe | Thinking in Dark Times # 17

May 19, 2023

Why should we avoid dividing Europe into "Western," "Central," and "Eastern," and instead speak of Europe as a whole? What is Ukraine's struggle bringing to the European idea? What is it like for a British intellectual to visit Ukraine during the war? Why must Europe regain its strength and power?

  • Volodymyr Yermolenko, Ukrainian philosopher and chief editor of UkraineWorld.org, speaks to Timothy Garton Ash, a British historian, the author of eleven books on politics and the 'history of the present.' Timothy Garton Ash is a Professor of European Studies in the University of Oxford, Isaiah Berlin Professorial Fellow at St Antony's College, Oxford, and a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.
