Event description

Description

Authoritarian states are, by definition, not a comfortable environment for opposing the government. In Vladimir Putin’s Russia, opposition activists have been exiled, imprisoned and killed. Yet despite the repressions, and despite being shut off from the official political process, there is a vibrant and diverse movement of opposition voices in Russia. This seminar will look at the state, the goals, and the most prominent personalities in the Russian democratic opposition.

Special Guest (via Skype): Dmitri Gudkov, former Member of the Russian Parliament and candidate for Mayor of Moscow in 2018
