In this video, Frédéric Munier, professor of geopolitics, and Laurent Ferrara, professor of international economics at SKEMA Business School, share their analysis of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, which began on 24 February 2022. This discussion, at the crossroads of geopolitics and economics offers a new perspective on this deadly war. What events led Russia to invade Ukraine? What are the economic consequences for the European continent, which is experiencing its first war since the beginning of the 21st century? How will the conflict unfold? What can we expect in the coming months or years? These are the main questions guiding this discussion.
