The interdisciplinary research network Prisma Ukraïna—Research Network Eastern Europe goes back to the initiative of long-term Fellow of the Forum Transregionale Studien Dr. Andrii Portnov. It involves numerous institutions in Berlin and Brandenburg and continues, under the direction of Dr. Andrii Portnov, the work of the Berlin-Brandenburg Ukraine Initiative (BBUI) that was founded in 2015. Ukraine figures as both the central research object and a “prism” opening up transregional perspectives.
