Information about the guest lecturer: 

Oksana Mikheieva is a UNET Fellow at ZOiS/the Centre for East European and international Studies. In 2020-2023 she was a DAAD professor at the Faculty of Social and Cultural Sciences, European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), Germany. She is also a professor of sociology at the Ukrainian Catholic University (Lviv). Additionally, she serves on the editorial board of peer-review journals “Ukraina moderna”, “City: History, Culture, Society”, and “East” (“Skhid”). She has participated in more than 20 sociological research projects, in 12 of which she was a principal investigator. She researches a wide range of areas, including the historical aspects of deviant and delinquent behavior, urban studies, paramilitary motivations, forced displacement, migration. 


This upcoming lecture by Prof.Dr.Oksana Mikheieva on the topic ‘War-time volunteering and population displacement: from spontaneous help to organised volunteering in post-2014 Ukraine’ will present the results of her collaborative study with Dr. Irina Kuznetsova (University of Birmingham). Ukrainian volunteering was a response to the events of Euromaidan and the beginning of Russian aggression against Ukraine in 2014. Presentation will address the hybrid character of volunteering in Ukraine via its relations with business, communities, social welfare and state authorities. We argue that the character of these relations impacts the state of the civil society role in addressing issues with displacement in 2022.  The developed volunteering practices have a high capacity to support the post-war reconstruction in Ukraine.


This lecture is the first of a series of lectures on the topic "Ukraine between history and modernity: war challenges, historical  narratives and a conflict of interpretations".
