Prof Eichwede: Putin fears the Maidan effect

In two video interviews with our editor Christoph Sodemann, Bremen historian Wolfgang Eichwede analysed the situation in Russia after the start of Putin's war against Ukraine. Eichwede was a professor at the University of Bremen from 1974 to 2007 and served as founding director of the internationally renowned Research Centre for East European Studies at Uni Bremen. In the first interview on 1 March, Eichwede commented mainly on the state of internal opposition to Putin. The second interview addressed possible scenarios for a peace settlement. Professor Eichwede will also be a guest at our panel discussion "Putin's War on Ukraine - European Policy and Security Architecture" in the Bremen Parliament on 5 May.

New India Chapter Kickoff

For years, Indians have been one of the largest groups of foreign students at the University of Bremen — currently, around 270 are enrolled. Good reason, therefore, to found a new India chapter of our association. After an initial preparatory meeting in March, things will now really get going. The new chapter will be officially inaugurated on Tuesday, 13 July 2021, at 3 pm CET. One of the topics on the agenda: planning a German-Indian conference on sustainability.

Around 5,000 new students are expected to begin their degrees at the University of Bremen this winter semester. Among them are many international students, who often arrive in Bremen with only the luggage allowed on an airplane. They frequently live in the sparsely equipped rooms of the student residences. The SeniorCitizens, a group of senior citizens who take classes at the University of Bremen, would like to help out these international students by collecting household goods.
