IOP statement on Ukraine

3 March 2022

A statement from IOP President Professor Sheila Rowan. 

The Institute of Physics condemns Russia’s actions against Ukraine which are a violation of one of the most fundamental norms of international law that prohibits the use or threat of force by one state against another. As a member of the European Physical Society we support the statement of the Executive Committee.

Physics is a global endeavour, and we continue to support academic freedom of scientists everywhere.
We hope for a quick resolution of the crisis to bring an end to its devastating impacts on the people of Ukraine.
Professor Sheila Rowan CBE FRS FRSE Hon.FInstP
President, Institute of Physics
