SIU'sPaul Simon Public Policy Institutewill mark the one-year anniversary of Russia's incursion in Ukraine with a special symposium.

The Simon Institute is hosting "War in Ukraine One Year In: Surprises, Challenges, and Recommendations" with SIUC Faculty members Stephen Shulman and Steve Bloom. Institute Director John Shaw will moderate the conversation, which is set for 5pm Wednesday in Morris Library's Guyon Auditorium.

Shaw says an anniversary like this one is an opportunity to take stock, and ask questions. He says Wednesday's conversation will focus on what's happened, as well as lessons learned and a look at the potential future in the region.

Stephen Shulman teaches international relations, as well as American foreign policy and other related classes, while Bloom has taught in Ukraine in the Fulbright Scholar Program, and his emphasis is in ethnicity and nationalism in the former Soviet Union.

The symposium will also be livestreamed - you can find it on the university's YouTube channel.

Jennifer Fuller joined Capitol News Illinois in July 2023 as the organization’s broadcast director. She will oversee the launch and operations of CNI’s new broadcast division.
