HREC established a partnership in 2017 with the Petro Jacyk Program for the Study of Ukraine (Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, University of Toronto) to host a visiting scholar in Holodomor studies annually. The HREC Visiting Scholar has access to the university’s rich library resources and to the archives of the Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre, which include unpublished eyewitness accounts and survivor interviews. HREC also facilitates meetings with colleagues in the genocide studies community.
