ANNOUNCEMENT: How to bolster Ukraine’s wartime resilience
18 April 2024, 09:30

New Europe Center invites to webinar “How to bolster Ukraine’s wartime resilience”.

In the face of protracted war, Ukrainian society and economy have shown noteworthy resilience. Ukrainian civil society and the private sector have played vital roles in filling gaps where state support is limited. Local communities and mayors deal with the influx of veterans, displaced persons, and the consequences of daily aerial strikes.

However, delayed Western military assistance, pressure to reconstitute armed forces, and devastating attacks on energy infrastructure add new pressure and risk causing systemic damage to Ukraine’s capacity to resist Russian invasion. The most recent World Bank assessment puts the annual destruction bill at $75 billion USD.

In preparation for the 2024 Ukraine Recovery Conference in Berlin, we are hosting a discussion on how Ukraine’s partners can support and bolster its resilience during times of war. The discussion will also draw upon a recent Resilience Barometer publication from Chatham House and new research on individual resilience.

Date: April 30.

Time: 14:00-15:30 BST.

Registration is available here.


Key questions:

  • What are the current sources of societal resilience in Ukraine?
  • What are the risks?
  • What does Ukraine’s homefront need to continue fighting?
  • How can donors and Western partners support Ukraine’s resilience in terms of its people, economy, and institutions?
  • What are the lessons learned from the war so far?


  • Kateryna Zarembo, Senior Associate Fellow, New Europe Center;
  • Orysia Lutsevych, Head of the Ukraine Forum;
  • Yuliya Yurchuk, Lecturer of History of Ideas, Sodertorn University.

The event is organised by Ukraine Forum at Chatham House in partnership with the New Europe Center.
