Ukraine: Supporting Colleagues 
In the light of the war in Ukraine initiated by the Russian Government the European Association of Biblical Studies affirms that it deplores all kinds of military and other forms of aggression. Such aggression is never acceptable. It causes untold human suffering and is completely incompatible with those values that provide the basis for academic freedom and collaboration. EABS seeks to support all scholars with interests in Biblical Studies and related areas, in whatever political circumstances they might live, to enable all in Europe and beyond to participate in an increasingly vibrant disciplinary and interdisciplinary range of academic discourses, some of which can engage with and challenge the use and abuse of the Bible in politics. In these critical times EABS commits to designating some funding to support EABS members who find themselves in zones of conflict.
