Join Dr. John Kotch as he presents an hour-long discussion titled The Crisis in Ukraine and Crimea: Crisis Diplomacy at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 10, at the Howland Public Library. Kotch will explore how the dynamic relationship between international law and international politics plays out in the Ukraine and Crimea. The discussion will focus on crisis management and diplomacy. He will raise questions such as, “What is a crisis?” and “What are its origins, both in terms of Ukrainian history and politics?”
Kotch holds a Ph.D. in political science and international relations from Columbia University, an MBA in international business from the Columbia University School of Business, and an International Business Law Certificate from the American University of Paris, Sorbonne. He has taught at Cambridge and Harvard universities, among others.
