The Voices of EuromaidanDecember 2013 - February 2014

"Euromaidan: the Voices of Resistance and Hope" is the documentation of experiences, attitudes, motivations, and expectations of Euromaidan participants. The project was coordinated by the Center for Urban History in Lviv (coordinators - Anna Chebotarova and Nataliia Otrishchenko) in cooperation with Warsaw University and the University of St. Gallen. The goal of the project was to preserve for further understanding the voices of participants and activists of the Ukrainian protests through the microperspective of experiencing a historical moment.

More than 140 semi-structured in-depth interviews with rallies participants and activists were conducted on the Maidans of Kyiv, Lviv, and Kharkiv in December 2013 and February 2014. The questions were related to practices and forms of participation in Euromaidan and similar events, motivations and emotional experiences, the meaning of protest places, opinions about protest slogans, European integration and European values, ​​and hopes for the future. The sample was designed to convey the specific situation of protest in each city and to conduct interviews with people of different ages and genders, who represented various groups of protesters from different Ukrainian regions.
