Throughout her academic projects, Dr Ganschow is working on the presence of the so-called Russian diaspora in Luxembourg, i.e. the emigrant population from former Soviet Republics. Her current project deals with Soviet forced labourers during the Second World War and is commissioned by the Luxembourg government. In her work, she decided to compare the situation of these forced labourers, mainly young women coming from Ukraine, with the local population, in the Belval region in the south of Luxembourg. Another interview topic is LURN network (Luxembourg Ukrainian Researcher Network) which aims to connect Ukrainian researchers displaced by the war and who are temporarily working in Luxembourg for research institutions. It also aims to provide additional points of contact with the Luxembourg research community.
The LURN already organised three different meetings and workshops since its creation in August 2022, facilitating Ukrainian scholars contacts in Luxembourg new environment, and stimulating new research projects.
