Quo vadis Belarus, Ukraine, Russia: what can Europe do?

Date: 
Thursday, December 10, 2020 - 18:00 to 20:00

In the third of our series of online conferences on Belarus, Ukraine and Russia we look at what Europe do to safeguard human rights in the region. 

Watch live on Facebook

 

We will hear from an international panel of civil rights campaigners, opinion formers and human rights experts, as we ask:

When are we going to stop talking about the democratic opposition and start talking about the democratic majority in Belarus?

What steps can be taken to empower women and encourage a culture of human rights in Ukraine?

Who will replace Putin and what might that mean for democracy, human rights and the rule of law in Russia?

How can Europe best support those fighting for freedom, democracy and human rights in the region?

 

Our event takes place to mark the UN's International Human Rights Day.
