The war in Eastern Europe has damaged postsecondary education: Opinion

War is the enemy of education, writes Ani Kokobobo. Kokobobo describes how the war between Russia and Ukraine has damaged the postsecondary education systems of both countries. In Ukraine, scholars in occupied zones are afraid of speaking out, some scholars have become refugees or taken up arms, and some institutions have become refugee camps. Meanwhile, in Russia, academic voices speaking against the war are being silenced by laws and campaigns to stifle resistance. Ukraine and Russia also share strong research ties, writes Kokobobo, so many research projects have been suspended. The author calls for Western universities to provide support to scholars who have been displaced due to the war.
