Support for Ukrainian researchers

The IfL is committed as a host institution for researchers who have fled Ukraine. 

In addition, the IfL offers support to researchers from Russia and Belarus who are at risk due to the Ukraine war and the situation in their countries. The prerequisite is that their previous academic work fits in with the IfL's main research areas (migration and mobility, urban and spatial development, border research, history of geography, geovisualisation, etc.). For more information, please write to info(at)

For further support services, colleagues who have fled or are at risk can visit the University of New Europe website or
