Night Owl Session under the Chatham House Rule: Aggressive at Home and Abroad

For Conference Guests in Tartu Only


With opposition at home and abroad, Russia has taken a hardline line on both. With the Russian opposition's current options of imprisonment, repression, exile – or now even execution – is there a future for those partisans of democracy both inside and outside of Russia? What would such a Russian transition to democracy look like considering the domestic conditions that strongly echo those of seventy years ago? This panel will debate these issues in accordance with Chatham House rules.

Moderator: Col. (ret.) Dr. Zdzislaw Sliwa, Dean of the Baltic Defence College
