ZOiS Lecture Series | Ukraine: What Social Science Research Tells/Told Us

The online lecture series, organised in cooperation with Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, is timed to coincide with the academic summer semester in Germany, but is open to all. It brings together social scientists, among them many scholars from Ukraine, who will address aspects of the war but also long-term political and societal trends.

ZOiS Forum

The ZOiS Forum brings together academic, artistic, and political perspectives on the issues driving Eastern Europe today. Our aim is to make the significance and variety of our region of research accessible to a broad audience. Readings, discussions, presentations, and film screenings take place once a month during the semester.
