The Stalemate In Donbas: On Legislative Developments Towards Sustainable Peace

University essay from Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

Abstract: This paper seeks to identify indicators of why and how Ukrainian Government has failed to halt the conflict of Donbas by focusing on legislative developments between July 16 2014 - February 15, 2015. A Minimalist+politics approach has been applied, providing a theoretical framework that combines empiricy, normativity, and contextual settings to comprehend how peace processes operate depending on a country’s predetermined conditions. Ukrainian Government and the The Minsk Agreements, signed by representatives from Ukraine, Russia, Germany, and France both suggested laws on decentralization, anti-corruption, and security in order to improve the situation. Despite many suggestions, only a few were implemented. Indications of a lacking governmental capacity caused by domestic corruption, as well as indications of unwillingness to implement these laws have explained why and how Ukrainian Government failed to decrease hostilities in the conflict of Donbas during the studied time period.
