Statement on Russia’s Aggression against Ukraine >>>

We strongly condemn Russia's aggression which started in 2014 with the annexation of Crimea and escalated on February 24, 2022 with the massive invasion of Ukraine. This war is destroying peace in Europe and leading to the destruction of the existing political, economic, and socio-cultural relations globally.

Temporary Membership Waiver for Scholars Based in Ukraine

EAIS is in continuous contact with our colleagues in Ukraine who now are defending their families and country from Russian aggression. We acclaim efforts of the Ukrainian Association for Jewish Studies. To show our solidarity and support for their struggles, following the decision of the European Association of Jewish Studies, we announce a temporary membership waiver for scholars based in Ukraine. Scholars representing Ukrainian universities and based in Ukraine who hold a PhD or are PhD students and are engaged in research of Israel will be entitled to a three-year membership waiver (2022, 2023, 2024) after successful application submitted until 31 August 2022. Ukrainian Israel Studies scholars who have left Ukraine since the war began may also be entitled to a membership fee waiver depending on their circumstances. For more information, please contact the EAIS before the deadline (info@israelstudies.eu).
