In response to the international COVID-19 pandemic, the Center for Slavic and East European Studies is running a series of blog posts featuring insights from affiliates throughout the Eastern European and Eurasian region about this current crisis. We hope that these posts will help to enlighten our readers about the perspective of those from outside the U.S. towards the pandemic, as well as highlighting commonalities!
Please note that we have edited slightly the responses that we have collected.
Posts will be published weekly on Mondays, with a secondary publication on Tuesdays if we have multiple sets of responses for a week’s featured topic. Check back often, subscribe to updates, and/or subscribe to our weekly email newsletter for reminders about publications!
