Peace initiatives in Ukraine

During the difficult time we are living internationally as a result of the beginning of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the RUS community has been working to identify concrete actions related to the achievement of the goals of the 2030 Agenda, in particular the SDG16 "Peace, Justice and Sound Institutions", which promotes principles without which the action for the other Sustainable Development Goals would be limited and difficult to implement.

Therefore, RUS has joined both the appeal of the Conference of Italian University Rectors (CRUI) and the Network of Universities for Peace (RUniPace) irecognizing that the construction and consolidation of peace by peaceful means is a constitutive vocation of the Academy. A strong and immediate diplomatic action is the only way to deal with the complexity of the current conflict and the appeal of the Ministry of University and Research (MUR) ntends to ensure all necessary and effective support to promote concrete actions to host Ukrainian students, researchers and professors in universities, research institutions, and institutions of higher education in art, music and dance in our country. For this reason the MUR is collecting any kind of availability, in particular scholarships and accommodation, to host Ukrainian students, professors and researchers.
