Handbook of Cultural Security

Edited by Yasushi Watanabe

This Handbook aims to heighten our awareness of the unique and delicate interplay between ‘Culture’ and ‘Society’ in the age of globalization. With particular emphasis on the role of culture in the field of “non-traditional” security, and seeking to define what ‘being secure’ means in different contexts, this Handbook explores the emerging concept of cultural security, providing a platform for future debates in both academic and policy fields.

Chapter 24: Cultural security of Ukraine in times of conflict: legal aspects

Andrei Richter


This chapter describes Ukraine’s efforts to provide cultural security through a set of steps that ensure its departure from the dominance of Russian and Russian language cultural artefacts, as well as a replacement of the Soviet ideology with common European values, and countering hostile propaganda from Moscow that started during the Maidan events of 2013_14. Under current military threats from Russia and Russia-backed separatists in the east of the country, such legal instruments as the new legislation and court deliberations, inspired in particular by the national security agencies, were used as a principal tool of cultural security.
