Ukraine in European Dialogue
There is an ongoing need for sustained dialogue between Ukrainian scholars, intellectuals and activists and their counterparts in Europe and North America. The Ukraine in European Dialogue research program, initiated in 2015 by IWM Permanent Fellow Timothy Snyder, seeks to contribute to this exchange and is dedicated to enabling sustained contact and exchange between scholars, public intellectuals, journalists, activists and policymakers from Ukraine and the rest of Europe.
This project, set up in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, seeks to facilitate this work by supporting journalists, scholars, artists, public intellectuals, and archivists based in Ukraine as they work on documentation projects that establish and preserve a factual record, through reporting, gathering published source material, or collecting oral testimony; or bring meaning to events through artistic interpretation and intellectual reflection. Timothy Snyder leads this project together with IWM Permanent Fellow Katherine Younger.
