On Friday, February 5th, human rights experts Dmitry Dubrovsky, Dmitry Makarov, Tatyana Margolin, and Emma Gilligan will discuss what can be done to improve human rights abuses in Russia today, the important role of the US and of NGOs, and the larger role of authoritarianism on human rights in the world.
This panel follows on a series of human rights projects that RSW has supported in recent years, including a fall 2020 panel devoted to Black Lives Matter in Russia, a fall 2019 symposium dedicated to the life and legacy of Lyudmila Alexeyeva, a spring 2018 seminar addressing Enforced Disappearances and Torture in the Russian Federation, a semester-long campus visit in fall 2019 that we co-sponsored by LGBTQ activist Lyosha Gorshkov, and various other faculty-led and student-involved scholarly research projects.
In order to participate in the discussion at the end of the panel, participation on Zoom is required. The event will also be live-broadcast onto Facebook and recorded for future viewing.
