Ibrahim Muradov joined UBC as a postdoctoral research fellow in September 2022. Dr. Muradov has been a faculty member in the Department of International Relations and Audit at Dnipro University of Technology since 2020. He received his Ph.D. in International Relations from Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey) in 2019. His research interests cover armed conflicts in former Soviet republics, particularly Ukraine. Dr. Muradov published a number of articles on the war in Ukraine. One of his most recent publications is titled “Russia’s War Against Ukraine: A Security Dilemma or What”. Besides, he authored two books in 2021: one on Eurasian Studies and another on Conflicts and Peace Studies. Dr. Muradov teaches courses such as “Introduction to Eurasian Studies”, “Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies”, and “IR Theory” among others. As a postdoctoral research fellow, he also delivers one course titled “The Russia-Ukraine War: Its Causes and Impacts on World Politics” to fourth-year students at UBC. Dr. Muradov has been personally affected by Russia’s unprovoked war against Ukraine and maintains his responsibilities at Dnipro University of Technology (Ukraine) remotely.
Dr. Ibrahim Muradov’s research interest covers armed conflicts in post-Soviet geography, particularly Ukraine. Prior to Russia’s full-fledged war against Ukraine, Dr. Muradov studied the Donbas Conflict in Ukraine as a form of Hybrid Warfare conducted by the Russian Federation. He sought to unpack Moscow’s ultimate objective in Ukraine by drawing parallels with other armed conflicts in the former Soviet republics.
Currently, Dr. Muradov maintains his research on the Russia-Ukraine war within the scope of the SSHRC grant-funded fellowship (2022-23) at UBC under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Lisa Sundstrom. The research mainly aims to reveal the impacts of the war on world politics by examining the international agential power of Ukraine. To this end, Dr. Muradov concentrates on the civil society and government relationship in both Ukraine and Russia.
