The recent referendum on the status of Crimea on March 16, 2014 and their formal declaration of independence from Ukraine hold many implications for a wide range of issues linked to geopolitics, the economy and social justice in the region and beyond. The continuing crisis in the region also affects other socio-political issues such as the sovereign right of a country and its people to self-identity and the maintenance of the status quo of the current world order structure. These are issues which affect the interest and security of not only Russia, but many other nation-states whose own internal social struggles reflect that of Crimea and its people and therefore are matters which require in-depth discussion, and political finesse.

It is a unanimous truth however that the crisis in Ukraine, will have a larger lasting effect to the world order in the 21st Century and may spearhead a new unexplored frontier in the reshaping of the current world order.

The International Movement for a Just World (JUST) cordially invites you to a JUST forum entitled The Crisis in Ukraine, What it Means to the World. The goal of this forum is to highlight the various issues in the Ukraine crisis, what it means for the people of Ukraine, and how these issues affect the socio-political dynamics of the International system.

The honourable speakers who will be sharing their insights are H.E. Ms. Lyudmilla G. Vorobyeva (Ambassador of Russia to Malaysia), Mr Bunn Nagara (Senior Fellow, Institute of Strategic and International Studies), and Dr Chandra Muzaffar (President, International Movement for a Just World)

 

We look forward to your presence and participation. Thank you.
