As political unrest continues to grow in Ukraine, the University of Rhode Island will host a Google+ Hangout with a panel of its own business and political science experts on Monday, March 17 from 9 to 9:45 a.m. EST to discuss the country’s current economic, political and financial situation, as well as its uncertain future.
URI Political Science Professor Nicolai Petro will join the Google+ Hangout from Ukraine, where he’s been engaged in discussions with Ukrainian politicians, religious leaders and academics. URI Business Professor Michael De Angelis, who has been consulting with Ukraine on behalf of the U.S. Department of Treasury to help develop the country’s debt laws, will join the Hangout from Paris. And Ukrainian Bogdan Prokopovych, a visiting business professor at URI, will join the Hangout from his office on the URI Kingston campus with his perspective.
URI Political Science Professor Kristin Johnson will moderate the discussion with questions submitted by viewers in the Livestream chat box. Viewers can also connect during the live interview via Twitter by tweeting their questions and comments and adding the hashtag #URIukraine
