As we approach February 2024, marking two years since the escalation of the Russia-Ukraine war, the full-scale invasion has defied many predictions by experts. Simultaneously, the war offers a myriad of lessons for scholars in international relations, military theory, economics, history, and various other social sciences. During the panel discussion, experts will delve into how the war has metamorphosed Ukraine and Russia since the February 2022 escalation, examining its impact on the immediate region and the broader global order. Furthermore, panelists will gaze into the future, contemplating what to anticipate in 2024 and beyond. The key questions to be explored include: What transpired? What is the current situation? And, most importantly, where are we heading?
