I publish articles also outside this service. Here is a list of my publications in scientific magazines, on think-tank websites and other places.
In a commentary for the Global.Lab, a Polish think-tank, I elaborate on a political and diplomatic role of cities in the globalised world. The other contributors were Robert Biedroń, the mayor of Słupsk (Poland), Angelina Kussy of the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Jan Mencwel of the Miasto Jest Nasze association (Poland) and Alejandra Salas Petit z United Cities and Local Governments.
The aim of the article is to present theory and practice of national branding, with Ukraine – not included in typical branding reports – as a case study. The theoretical background to the concept of nation branding is presented in the first section of the article. The second part is focused on key international branding indexes and shows the differences and similarities among them, as well as their flexibility in responding to theory. The third part of the article is focused on the picture that one may draw about Ukraine and its image and brand from various international rankings that serve as a substitute for branding surveys.

[EN]: The German Marshall Fund of the United States: “We Need To Dream Big” (Dec 6th, 2016)
This essay is a reflection on my participation in the Marshall Memorial Fellowship in the US in October-November 2016. I focus here on the importance of transatlantic ties and the urgent need to go beyond stereotypes and worn paths. And there is something about procrastination, too.
My articles on knowledge diplomacy and other kinds of public diplomacy appear monthly also on the website of the Center on Public Diplomacy of the University of Southern California.
