About the Seminar


During our forthcoming seminar we want to present our Special Issue announced by reputable international journal “Contemporary Economics” entitled: The Russo-Ukrainian War: Impact and Consequences. You will have an unique chance to discuss your topics and ideas of your submissions.

Moreover we want to present our brand new article in this scope that can be used as example and inspiration. It is entitled: “The War Between Ukraine and Russia: How Costly and Painful”.

The academic research on military disputes varies in approach and methodology, revealing the broader concept of military conflict. Because a military confrontation is far from linear, the heterogeneity and complexity of combat dynamics are systemic in nature. The military conflict and its economic assessment’s discrepancies result from the multi‐dimensionality of impact and perplexed redistributive impact patterns. The idiosyncratic nature of military confrontation incidents is based, among others, on the magnitude and duration of the event, the size and state of the local economy, the geographical locations affected, the population density, and the time they occurred. If the calculations of attack-related direct costs and short-run effects are readily traceable, the estimation of indirect costs can be an arduous task.

This special issue provides a multi-disciplinary assessment of the Russo-Ukrainian military confrontation’s global and regional macroeconomic implications. We are looking for papers that investigate the emerging post-conflict economic disruption over the short- and long-run in the context of physical and human capital. Also, studies that overcome theoretical and empirical limitations encountered by the path-dependency perspective, developing aftermath holistic policy objectives under the historical, cultural, social, geopolitical, and economic prism are welcome.

The purpose of this special issue is to shed light on the geopolitical dynamics of the disrupted areas and draw lessons from them that may contribute to the development of effective strategies for international, regional, and local actors to alter the economic incentives that shape the strategy of involved parties.
