ONLINE | The Deep and Broad Social Dimensions of the Protests in Belarus
Tuesday, November 10, 2020, 11:00AM to 12:15PM (EST)
WATCH THE VIDEO RECORDING OF THE PANEL HERE.
The nation-wide peaceful protest taking place in Belarus includes a broad spectrum of citizens: workers, pensioners, students, football fans, nouveau-riche entrepreneurs, teachers, artists, professional sportsmen, people with special needs, and of course, women. There is a high level of mobilization of the Belarusian, with many social groups experiencing distinctive transformations of their own, not only building their specific identities, but also empowering their roles and contributions to their dignity and the demands of the peaceful protest.
The goal of the webinar is to outline a more specific portrait of the Belarusian protest by addressing the nature of social changes that have occurred since the presidential election on August 9 by taking several groups: NGOs, women, and academia/students, in order to demonstrate the deep and broad dimensions of the protest in Belarus. Moderated by Jeffrey C. Goldfarb.
