Cologne/Bonn Academy in Exile (CBA)

The Cologne/Bonn Academy in Exile was founded on June 13, 2022 by the University of Cologne and the University of Bonn. Its goal is to support renowned scientists who had to flee due to the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine. In addition to researchers from Ukraine, this can also include researchers from Russia and Belarus who are being persecuted for their opposition to the war.

Overall Goals of the Project

Overarching goals of the project

  1. In the course of Ukraine's possible accession to the EU, a contribution to integration into the European community is to be made. 

  2. The transition to a peaceful future after the war should be supported. 

  3.  Regional-specific knowledge should be preserved and further promoted. 

The academy focuses on the areas of law, politics, history, cultural studies and linguistics. Projects related to comparative politics, comparative law, comparative linguistics and European history are of central importance.

What we offer

The Universities of Bonn and Cologne offer:

 

  • Office space and administrative support

  • integration into a scientific research community with specialists in the fields of political science, law, history, Slavic literature and culture

  • Support from a personal mentor 

  • Seminars and workshops for scientific exchange

The CBA is a forum for exchange, but provides itself no financial resources  available. Anyone who has not yet secured funding for a current research project will be supported by the CBA in applying for a grant. Integration into the academic environment of the CBA is also possible without funding.
