Resilient Universities

This collection of essays is an endeavor to reflect upon and explore the phenomenon of university resilience in the context of Russia's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine – the largest land war in Europe since World War II. It could also be interpreted as an effort to contribute to Ukraine's post-war recovery by outlining a conceptual framework for a deeper understanding of the sources and principles of institutional and community resilience. The collection presents readers with a rich constellation of insights, hypotheses, and case studies, enhanced by the contributors' international perspectives and first-hand experiences.
