A cooperation agreement was signed with the Balkan History Association (Bucharest, Romania)


Director of the Center for Ukrainian and European Scientific Cooperation Dmytro Bielov signed a cooperation agreement in the field of scientific and educational activities with the Balkan History Association (BHA) where the president is Dr. Mihai Dragnea.

The Balkan History Association (BHA) is a non-profit, apolitical, and independent organization that aims to develop and promote at both national and international levels the interdisciplinary and comparative study of the Balkan region, and, more generally, of South-East Europe. The main fields of interest include, but are not restricted to various sub-disciplines of history—political, cultural, military, economic, urban, literary, oral, or the history of science communication – art history, history of religions and archaeology.

BHA’s audience is composed of researchers, professionals and academics from a secondary and tertiary education background, students at any level of the university trajectory, high-school and college students, in addition to anyone interested in the study of the art, history, or archaeology of the Balkans. The association defends the freedom of speech, encourages the collaborative exchange of ideas, and aspires to create a platform for cooperation between researchers and the general audience, designed to facilitate better collaboration between the states in the area.

The association’s activities include the organization of both academic events – conferences and lecture series – and social meetings. The information related to the events, as well as any research output generated on these occasions are advertised and published primarily through the official website of BHA, and association’s scientific journal Hiperboreea.
