The analytical report based on the survey conducted within the research project ‘Bukovyna as a Contact Zone’ was published both in Ukrainian and Romanian languages
The research project “Bukovyna as a Contact zone” is jointly coordinated by the NGO “Quadrivium” (Ukraine), the Centre for European Studies of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi (Romania) and the Center for Governance and Culture in Europe of the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland). The project is a part of the “Transcultural Contact Zones in Ukraine” research initiative financially supported by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation SERI, Swiss National Science Foundation and the Wolodymyr George Danyliw Foundation. For a better overview of the project please consult: http://www.uaregio.org/en/about/stage-2/.
Within the project a questionnaire-based survey, first of its kind on both sides of the Ukrainian-Romanian border, was simultaneously conducted by using the same set of questions. The data obtained from the survey are aimed at offering a comparative picture of two most relevant minority groups – Ukrainians and Romanians – living on the two sides of the frontier. The survey aimed at exploring the self-perceptions, identificational and attitudinal trends at the level of the two most relevant minority groups. The main results of the survey were analysed and published both in Ukrainian and Romanian languages and are available HERE.
The research results were presented at the annual project meeting this year entitled ‘Transnational Contact Zones: Redefining Ukrainian Regionalism’ that took place in Odesa, Ukraine, in September 14-16, 2017.
