The mission of the Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies is to support research, doctoral studies and scientific infrastructure related to the Baltic Sea Region and Eastern Europe. Accordingly, researchers from this area, including Ukraine and Russia, but also from many other countries in the region, are supported by the Foundation. The Foundation also provides funding for research relating to Ukraine. Examples of research projects funded may be found in the Foundation’s project database, but are also listed below.
The Foundation shares Södertörn University’s profound concern about the current situation of universities and researchers in Ukraine and Eastern Europe due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The Foundation intends to find ways of supporting continued free research, researcher exchange and independent development of universities in Ukraine and Eastern Europe.
Russia must immediately desist from all acts of war that are now tormenting the Ukrainian people. This aggression against an independent nation contravenes both international law and the fundamental moral principles of human coexistence.
