CAA has signed onto the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) statement in opposition to banning scholars based on citizenship. CAA stands by its previous condemnation of Russia’s colonialist aggression and oppression of Ukraine. At the same time, we share concerns about calls for blanket bans on the participation of individual Russians and Belarusians in scholarly events and scholarly exchange. CAA believes that banning Russians and Belarusians based solely on their citizenship goes against our fundamental principles of scholarship, open communication, and dialogue.
