Webinar: Youth, Civil Resistance and Elections in Eastern Europe


It's a great time—with young people leading gun-reform movements in the United States—to get some inspiration and some know-how from youth movements in eastern Europe where (for one), young Serbian activists brought down that nation's dictator in 2000. 

Hosted by the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, this webinar features Olena Nikolayenko, Associate Professor of Political Science at Fordham University, talking with participants about what makes student-led movements successful. Nikolayenko is the author of Youth Movements and Elections in Eastern Europe, her work focuses on (among other issues), anti-government protests in contemporary Russia, and women’s engagement in high-risk activism in Ukraine.
