Solidarity for a respectful, peaceful and self-determined coexistence in Europe
25 February 2022
The IAMO Board of Directors is appalled by Russia's military attack on Ukraine, contrary to international law. We condemn it as a violation of the values and principles of respectful, peaceful and self-determined coexistence in Europe. We feel for all staff members, alumni and numerous cooperation partners and friends who have been directly or indirectly affected by this and wish you, your families and friends support and safe refuge. Our field of work, the sustainable development of agriculture and rural areas in a region that is important for securing the world's food supply and constructive scientific cooperation, can only thrive in a peaceful, respectful and liberal atmosphere. We, therefore, support all efforts to secure and restore a venerating and self-determined life in peace and freedom in Europe.
