As a prelude to the new project Ukraine in European Dialogue the IWM contributed to the School of Kyiv Biennial taking place in the Ukrainian capital from September 8 to November 1, 2015. The Biennial included an extensive intellectual program organized into “Schools”, with the “School of Abducted Europe” being the focus of the Institute’s contributions.
