Support the future of Ukraine

The Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) together with the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) and the Embassy of Ukraine in Sweden invite students, faculty, staff and partners to an evening to learn more about the impact of the war in Ukraine and how we can support fellow students and faculty members from our partner school, the Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) and Ukrainian academics and students more generally.

This event launches our support association, Friends of KSE, organized in hybrid mode at the Stockholm School of Economics in Sweden and online to include speakers and participants from all over the world, including of course our amazing colleagues at Kyiv School of Economics (KSE) that are still in Ukraine.

Speakers will include:

KSE President, Tymofiy Mylovanov, the Ambassador of Ukraine to Sweden, Andrii Plakhotniuk, the Ambassador of Sweden to Ukraine, Tobias Thyberg, State Secretary to the Minister for International Development Cooperation, Jenny Ohlsson, SSE President, Lars Strannegård, SSE Riga President Anders Paalzow, KSE board member and UC Berkeley professor, Yuriy Gorodnichenko, SITE research assistant, Hanna Anisimova, and students from KSE and SSE.

The moderators will be Torbjörn Becker, Director of SITE and Board Member of KSE together with Wilma Liewendahl, President of the Student Association (SASSE) at SSE.

During the evening, we will be raising funds for the newly formed Swedish nonprofit organization, the Friends of KSE, to help provide intellectual and humanitarian support to researchers and students at KSE, working within and outside Ukraine’s borders.

About "Friends of KSE"

Friends of KSE is a Swedish nonprofit ("Ideell förening”) with the purpose to support academics with links to Ukraine and in particular, though not exclusively, those at the Kyiv School of Economics. This will be done through fundraising and financial as well as intellectual support. The funds raised will only be used to support Ukrainian academics and faculty, staff, and students at KSE. The administrative cost of the association are capped not to exceed 5% of the funds raised. Anyone that wants to support KSE is welcome, and there is also an opportunity to join the association.
