Harriman Institute StatementRussia's War on Ukraine
The Harriman Institute strongly condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This attack on the Ukrainian people and on Ukrainian sovereignty violates the principles of international law and has inflicted deplorable suffering and instability across the region. In these tragic times, we will continue to inform and educate, particularly in an atmosphere of authoritarianism and amplified disinformation, as articulated by Columbia University’s President Lee Bollinger. We stand with all who are so terribly affected by this crisis. Over the next days and weeks, we will announce a number of initiatives and projects to support people and scholars of Ukraine. Suggestions for where to donate can be found at Razom for Ukraine.
Residencies in Paris
We invite Ukrainian writers, journalists, and creative artists to apply for Harriman co-sponsored residencies in Paris.
