The IOS supports journalists in their coverage of Eastern and Southeast Europe. The Institute is staffed by historians, economists, and political scientists, with a focus on East Europe—especially the former Soviet Union—and Southeast Europe. We are happy to provide the media with information on these topics. In addition, we provide information on Eastern and Southeast Europe and on the IOS through our blogs and social media or in our newsletter.

We will be glad to answer your inquiries or add you to our press mailing list (restricted to journalists).
