Statement on the War in Ukraine
Tuesday March 8, 2022
The Board of the Dutch Association for Logic and Philosophy of the Exact Sciences (VvL) unconditionally condemns the military aggression by Russia in Ukraine. We stand up against the blatant attack of the Russian government against a sovereign state, against democracy and against innocent people. In these difficult times we express our full solidarity and support to our Ukrainian colleagues.
About the VvL
The Dutch Association for Logic and Philosophy of the Exact Sciences is called 'Vereniging voor Logica en Wijsbegeerte van Exacte Wetenschappen’ in Dutch, and is usually referred to by the abbreviation VvL.
The Association represents not only logicians and philosophers in academia, but understands itself as a representation of everyone with an interest in logic or philosophy of the exact sciences. It also commits itself to popularising these areas to a broader audience. The VvL regularly organises events and supports initiatives in the relevant fields. In addition, the VvL functions as a de facto alumni organisation for logic.
The VvL currently has approximately 170 members, among which junior and senior researchers in logic in the Netherlands, master students, and members of the general public. The VvL also has honorary members (to be listed here soon).
