Diskussion LOVING ACTIVISM AGAIN?

Hörsaal 2, Erdgeschoß, Neues Institutsgebäude (NIG), Universitätsstraße 7, 1010 Vienna

In recent years, countries in Central and Eastern Europe have seen activism flourish. This can be observed across various levels of society and ranges from local initiatives and countrywide protests to globally connected movements. Citizens campaign for the environment and constitutionality and protest against austerity plans and the corrupt political elite. At the same time, however, anti-pluralistic protest increases – arguing for a homogenous cultural identity and standing against the rights of the LGBTIQ community or refugees. The discussion will include the short introduction of three LET’S CEE documentaries on the topic of activism. Following opening remarks by Prof. Dr. Tina Olteanu from the Institute for Political Science at the University of Vienna, filmmakers will discuss recent developments in activism and social changes in the CEE region. The event will be held in English.
