Harriman Institute Statement

Russia'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.

They will benefit from a monthly stipend, a housing and travel allowance, an individual workspace, and administrative support. A residential fellowship program bringing together scholars and creative artists, the Institute partners with Global Centers l Paris and Columbia’s academic programs to create rich cultural and intellectual offerings at Reid Hall.
