Hilary Term 2024 CCW Week 4: Economic Warfare in Ukraine

6th February 2024, 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Week 4: Tuesday 6 February 1.30pm in the Old Library

 

Professor Christopher Davis, University of Oxford

Economic Warfare in Ukraine

The evolution and outcomes of the armed conflicts in Ukraine over the period 2014-2024 have been strongly influenced by ideological, political, and military factors. However, defence-economic developments in Russia, Ukraine, countries of the Anti-Russia Coalition (ARC), and other nations have become increasingly important since February 2022 because Russia’s ‘limited military operation’ has evolved into a major resource-intensive and attritional war that has required mobilisations of military personnel and of defence industry in the direct adversary countries and provision of large-scale military and financial support to Ukraine by the ARC. This talk will use concepts and empirical material to answer key questions concerning Russia’s economy and defence-industrial complex (DIC) and economic issues related the war in Ukraine during 20222-24. The key concepts are: (1) the Russian economic system (war economy) and the production of economic power, (2) priority protection mechanisms in the war economy, (3) the defence industrial complex and the generation of military power, (4) global and regional economic-military power balances, (5) relations between Russia and other countries (adversary, neutral, partner) and their economic impacts, (6) economic sanctions/warfare and countermeasures, and (7) economic costs of war to Russia, Ukraine, the ARC, and non-engaged countries (China, Global South).
