Södertörn University: Response to the invasion of Ukraine

“Södertörn University has a specific focus on research into the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe. Due to our research focus, it is natural that Södertörn University has colleagues and departmental contacts with higher education institutions in Ukraine, as with researchers in Poland, Germany, the Baltic States and south-eastern Europe. And with researchers in Russia.

The university has student exchange agreements with two Russian state-run universities. These will now be terminated as Södertörn University has currently ceased cooperation with the Russian state.

Södertörn University is deeply concerned about the consequences of Russia’s attack on Ukraine, in terms of human suffering, academic freedom, and Ukraine’s sovereignty. We wish to support our colleagues in Ukraine in every way we can. The political regime led by Vladimir Putin must immediately cease its military aggression and respect international law.”

The Association of Swedish Higher Education Institutions wishes to state its strong support for higher education institutions in Ukraine, to colleagues, students and the entire civilian population who are affected by the Russian invasion. The closure of Ukrainian universities due to the current circumstances will have serious consequences, not only for higher education and research, but for society as whole in both the short and long term.
