"SSEESing" events are expert discussions hosted by the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies.
Flagship "SSEESing" evening events bring together both SSEES-based and external scholars and commentators to discuss and illuminate topics of interest to the general public relating to the SSEES region. The goal of these events is to help audience members navigate the multiple dimensions of topical issues, highlighting the expertise of SSEES members, as well as the School's engagement with non-academic actors and audiences. We aim to hold two large events per year.
In addition to these events, "SSEESing NOW" sessions provide an opportunity for expert briefings to the media, members of the academic community, and members of the general public on breaking issues in the SSEES region. These sessions take place on an ad hoc basis, responding to events as they develop.
Members of the public and press are warmly invited to attend these events to hear expert analysis on regional and current affairs.
