A strategy to help Ukraine win the war
The Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) invites you to an event to learn more about the current situation in Ukraine, the sanctions against Russia and how we all can support Ukraine and its people.
Kyiv School of Economics and its role in Ukraine’s resistance
Our partner organisation - Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) has been a role model in fundraising for Ukraine’s reconstruction. To this date KSE has raised 37 million US dollar in support of defence and education. Its most recent initiative focuses on building bomb shelters at schools all over Ukraine so that students at all levels can go back to their schools and obtain the education they deserve
Friends of KSE initiative in Sweden
Building human capital will be as important as rebuilding physical capital, while Ukraine prepares for its future in the European Union. While KSE is raising funds to support Ukraine in the war, we started the charitable foundation Friends of KSE in Sweden to support KSE as well as Ukrainian students and academics within and outside Ukraine more generally.
Since the event “Support the future of Ukraine” on April 19, 2022, the foundation has raised more than 500 000 EUR and this event will be an opportunity to increase this support.
Special guests from KSE and speakers
The event will host special guests from KSE - Tymofiy Mylovanov, President of KSE and former Minister of Economy and Trade in Ukraine, and Nataliia Shapoval, Vice President for Policy Research at KSE and one of the members of the influential Yermak-McFaul international expert group on sanctions.
Comments will be shared by Andreas Umland, analyst at the Stockholm Centre for Eastern European Studies (SCEEUS) at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs and by Torbjörn Becker, Director of SITE. The discussion will be moderated by Maria Perrotta Berlin, Assistant Professor at SITE.
