The edited volume “Regional Diversity, Decentralization, and Conflict” highlights the interlinkages between regional diversity, conflict in and around Ukraine and the ongoing decentralization reform in Ukraine. The book’s particular interest lies in exploring the decentralization reform’s effects on conflict resolution under the circumstances of the Russian Federation’s support for the leaders of de-facto Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics, as well as in Ukraine’s future development, more broadly. Seven of the book’s authors will present their contributions.
