Join us for a special presentation by Dr. Volodymyr Kulikov, a visiting historian at the University of Texas, titled “Stand on the Right Side of History: Multinational Corporations and the Russia-Ukraine War.”

Dr. Volodymyr Kulikov Dr. Volodymyr Kulikov Kulikov will discuss how since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February, the multinational corporations operating in Russia have been facing challenges rarely dealt with at business schools

He will also address the following questions: How and why can some companies benefit from war while others suffer disruption and destruction in their production and distribution networks? How does public pressure affect corporate behavior and reputation? What does (business) history teach us about ethical behavior in times of war?

To provide answers, the Russian case will be compared with previous armed conflicts and humanitarian crises, such as the Arab-Israeli conflict, Apartheid, the Soviet-Afghan War, and the Yugoslav Wars.

A native of Ukraine, Kulikov is also a professor in the Department of History at the Karazin Kharkiv National University, Ukraine, and he specializes in the business history of Eastern Europe.
