This event is part of the Russia-Ukraine Dialogues series.

Weekly panels on Tuesdays bring together in-house and external experts to report on and discuss the war’s impacts on various global issues.
From the 1st of November 2022, the LSE IDEAS Russia-Ukraine Dialogues is part-funded by PeaceRep (the Peace and Conflict Resolution Evidence Platform), an international research project rethinking peace and transition processes in light of changing conflict dynamics led by the University of Edinburgh Law School.
