Zooming in on april

The snow is finally gone from the streets of Helsinki, and the virus seems to be following suit!

For the time being the University of Helsinki and the Aleksanteri Institute are, however, still working almost exclusively online. Listed below are our late April - early May Zoom events. We have been delighted by the lively discussions at the past events, and are looking forward to hearing your insights on the upcoming topics as well!

Please note, that the Call for Papers for the Annual Aleksanteri Conference is closing on 30 April. Send in your proposals for papers, panels and round tables on time! For inspiration and introduction to the theme, we've started a monthly podcast, Eurasia and Global Migration. We hope you like it!
