Symposium “War and Peace in Ukraine: Reflecting, Studying and Engaging Across Disciplines”. By focusing on the case of Germany, this symposium will critically examine the recent developments in and between peace and conflict studies and East European studies, including different disciplinary approaches, old and new controversies, fruitful encounters and missed opportunities. Firstly, German and Ukrainian scholars will discuss how the professional interest in Ukraine has changed in and between their fields of expertise. Secondly, lessons will be driven from the ways in which experts’ voices have co-created German public debates about Ukrainian affairs and which challenges they face when attempting to bring scholarly expertise to highly political debates. Thirdly, by bringing together scholars from Ukraine and German-speaking countries, this event hopes to intensify the existing and create new intellectual ties – both individual and institutional.

Bitte melden Sie sich per Email an: jacobsc (at) . In Folge des am 24.02.22 begonnenen Angriffskriegs auf die Ukraine begaben sich mehr als eine Million Menschen aus der Ukraine auf die Flucht nach Deutschland. Unter ihnen besonders viele Frauen mit Kindern. Erste Erhebungen, wie die IAB-BiB/FReDA-BAMF-SOEP Befragung, untersuchten unter anderem die Lebensbedingungen und das Wohlbefinden der in Deutschland angekommenen Geflüchteten. Der Wissenschaftliche Beirat für Familienfragen und das Bundesinstitut für Bevölkerungsforschung (BiB) laden dazu ein, die ersten vorhandenen empirischen Erkenntnisse zur Lage geflüchteter ukrainischer Familien in Deutschland zu diskutieren und politische Konsequenzen daraus abzuleiten. Der erste Teil der Veranstaltung dient dem wissenschaftlichen Austausch. Dabei stellen Forschende, die sich mit quantitativen empirischen Erhebungen befasst haben, ihre Befunde zur Lage der ukrainischen Familien und Kinder vor. Im direkten Anschluss daran werden die politischen Implikationen mit Teilnehmenden aus Politik und Zivilgesellschaft diskutiert. Wie können die empirisch gewonnenen Erkenntnisse sinnvoll und effektiv in die Politik eingespeist werden? Welche Handlungsoptionen hat die Politik hinsichtlich des Umgangs mit geflüchteten Familien?
