NISPAcee Statement on Suspending Cooperation with Russian Institutions

which Support the War against Ukraine 
 
As declared in the previous statements, our academic community upholds the universal principles of peace and non-aggression and expresses an unequivocal solidarity towards the victims of war in Ukraine.
 
Therefore, NISPAcee will, for the time being, suspend institutional cooperation with any institution of the Russian Federation that actively supports the invasion of Ukraine; calls on its members to consider doing likewise.

EGPA-NISPAcee Joint Statement about the war on European soil

        
Three weeks ago, the unbelievable happened: war returned to our European soil. The Russian military aggression against Ukraine is not a limited and peripheral conflict, but a high intensity war causing enormous human suffering, loss of life, and physical destruction.  It is conducted by a sovereign State against another sovereign State and against its population, whose right to possess its own identity and to live freely and independently is denied by the aggressor.
