This academic network aims at strenghtening peace research in Europe and Eurasia with academic exchange (EPSE). It was founded in 2017 by the Centre for Peace Studies at the University Tromsø and the IFSH, and is funded by the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education. Among the members of the project team are representatives from three post-Soviet states (faculties for International Relations at the State Universities Odessa and Tbilisi; Academy for Educational Science, Kiev; faculty for Social Anthropology at the American University of Central Asia, Bishkek). Anna Kreikemeyer is the project coordinator at the IFSH.
