Since March 2014, the future of the Crimean The Future of Crimea (May 17)
Peninsula has been a key concern for the international community. Issues surrounding sovereignty and legitimacy, and the dangerous precedent set by Crimea’s annexation, have gone largely unresolved. Within this context, Mustafa Dzhemilev will speak about the unique perspective which the Crimean Tatars hold regarding this situation, and what the future holds for Crimea.

Mustafa Dzhemilev is a member of the Parliament of Ukraine and Commissioner of the President of Ukraine for the Affairs of Crimean Tatars. He was also Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People for over 20 years, and currently chairs the Ukrainian Parliament’s Subcommittee on Ethnic Policy, Rights for Indigenous Peoples and National Minorities of Ukraine, and Victims of Political Repression.

This event is co-hosted by EURUS and NPSIA, and made possible by assistance from the Embassy of Ukraine in Canada. Refreshments will be served.
