Next online session in the series “Perspectives on CEE” will be held on Saturday, April 3 and will be devoted to the state of democracy in Central & Eastern Europe.
Can we look for the reasons of current backsliding of democracies in the history of the 20th century? What are the main challenges and how they can be addressed with help of international organizations and what is the role of civil society in this context? We will define the main threats to democracy and stability, incl. the rise of extremisms – in particular we will focus on right wing extremisms as an ideology with very dynamic growth in numbers of sympathizers in the last 5 years. Finally, from a practical angle we will take a look at de-radicalization policies and programs – what works and what doesn’t?
The project is organized by Collegium Civitas and SRAS (USA) and promotes our study abroad and summer school courses. Each session meets one Saturday for four lectures. More information on the program & enrollment: https://sras.heiapply.com/course.php?id=7893
