The Voice of Ukrainian Educational Research Association across Borders or is there Educational Solidarity during Russian-Ukrainian War?

In this webinar we will hear from a panel of Ukrainian academics who will discuss their current work amidst the current war crisis with Russia. The platform is one to engage in support for colleagues across borders and to invite collaborations with UK scholars in wider considerations of how we can extend collegiality and scholarly support for current research and academic activities in current times.

The panel will present share their research and thoughts, which will then be followed by a Q&A session and wider online discussion.
