Support Program for Faculty and Researchers from Universities in Russia and Belarus

The Davis Center at Harvard University and ASEEES (Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies) are conducting a survey to assess the extent of assistance needed for faculty and researchers from universities in Russia and Belarus and to understand where such faculty and researchers have moved or are planning to move.

Possible forms of support include remote affiliation with one of the US universities; providing information about the availability of specialized vacancies at universities in the country of residence; providing access to libraries and campuses of these universities; and in some cases obtaining affiliation with one of the universities of Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan or another country as a visiting researcher or lecturer.

By filling out the questionnaire, you can maintain a comfortable level of anonymity. However, in order to propose your candidacy to local universities, the organizers need as much information as possible.

The aggregated and anonymized data will be used to explain the scale of the problem to organizations and foundations that issue grants. If a university is looking for a specialist in your profile, Executive Director of the Davis Center, Dr. Alexandra Vacrou will personally contact you.
The collected data will be protected by the information security system of Harvard University. However, please be aware that there is always a risk that this system could be hacked.
