The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will hold a conversation about the war in Ukraine on Thursday, May 5.

The event, “War in Ukraine: A Conversation,” will be held at 6 p.m. May 5 at UA Little Rock Downtown, 333 President Clinton Ave., Little Rock. The event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Eric Wiebelhaus-Brahm, associate professor in the School of Public Affairs at UA Little Rock, will discuss the Russian-Ukraine war, including if the conflict could have been prevented and what actions the international community should take in the present day to deal with the invasion.

The event will also look at the United Nations response to the war, the possible role of the International Criminal Court, how to evaluate Russian concerns about NATO, how members of the community can help with the crisis in Ukraine, and how to discern between credible news coverage and misinformation surrounding the war.

“The idea for the event emerged after getting frequent questions about the war from members of our community,” said Wiebelhaus-Brahm. “My goal is to provide community members with ideas and resources to help them analyze the multiple dimensions of the conflict that are on their minds.”

The event is sponsored by the Arkansas Coalition for Peace and Justice and Arkansas WAND. For more information, contact Dr. Wiebelhaus-Brahm at
