In the third episode of Ukraine DAO Talks we spoke to Dr Benjamin Tallis. Benjamin is a researcher, advisor specialising in the geopolitics of (in)security in Europe and the author of a new book "To Ukraine With Love: Essays on Russia's War and Europe's Future" - click here to buy it.
In this episode we speak about the history of the 20th century and the various features of the German culture - some of which seem to preventing Germans from taking more decisive action in Ukraine's support.
"To Ukraine With Love" is a collection of essays that illuminate Russia’s war on Ukraine, European responses to it and what they mean for the continent’s future. They offer the interested general reader an expert guided tour through the European security landscape from December 2021 to December 2022. The book provides ways of making sense of the war, why it matters and what we can do about it. This collection will appeal to anyone interested in Ukraine, Russia’s war, Germany, Central & Eastern Europe, the EU or the future of our democracies – and who wants to gain expert insight in an accessible way. A percentage of royalties from the book sales are donated to Ukrainian causes.
Dr. Benjamin Tallis is also research fellow at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) where he runs the 'Action Group Zeitenwende' project on Germany's security transformation. He previously worked for the EU on security missions in Ukraine and the Balkans.
After his doctorate at the University of Manchester, he spent five years at the IIR Prague where he headed the Centre for European Security, edited the journal New Perspectives, contributed to the 2016 EU Global Strategy and, in 2017, advised on visa liberalisation for Ukraine. He was then a fellow at IFSH (Hamburg) and policy officer at the Centre of Excellence for Civilian Crisis Management.
