Security dilemma in Ukraine: The second reading of Barry Posen
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Political Sciences
Serbia’s political identity in the regional and global context (MESTD - 179076)

This paper tries to establish which circumstances have changed in Ukraine and led to the crisis in 2013 and armed conflict in 2014. The model for analysis is borrowed from Barry R. Posen's paper 'The Security Dilemma and Ethnic Conflict' (1993). Posen uses the concept of security dilemma in order to explain why the ethnic conflict emerged between Serbs and Croats during the breakup of Yugoslavia and why there was no conflict between Russians and Ukrainians during the breakup of the USSR. The main task of this paper is to check if Posen's explanation still stands and to check if Posen's indicators could have signaled that the conflict in Ukraine in 2014 was imminent.
