ECA statement on the Russian military aggression in Ukraine

As a community of scholars, many of whom live in the post-Soviet and post-socialist countries and scholars who do research on education in these countries, we express our solidarity with the Ukrainian colleagues and Ukrainian people at this tragic moment of our history. We all have family, friendly, collegial and professional ties with Ukraine. We support Ukrainian sovereignty and peace. This war must stop.


Being scholars and educators, we should aim at a stronger contribution to understanding of the origins and implications of this tragic outcome of the Soviet and post-Soviet history which keeps shaping our lives. We should keep talking to each other in order to maintain the hope for a better world.
