How can Ukrainians living in Poland and Poles contribute to the further development of civil society in post-Maidan Ukraine?

Date: 18 November 2014
Organisers: ...
moderator: Professor Wojciech Bieńkowski.


Yulia Gogol, Maidan activist, Barney A. Karbank Award laureate; Krzysztof Stanowski, president of the Solidarity Fund PL; Kateryna Kuchmina, student at Lazarski University; Svetlana Iarmak, student at Lazarski University

This aim of the roundtable is to encourage Ukrainian and Polish students alike to actively participate in the democratic developments in Ukraine. We will be brainstorming so as to exchange ideas between experts, activists, and students.

This event will be a unique opportunity for students to put in practice the theoretical knowledge they have acquired within the framework of their studies. If you studies politics and international relations, it is not only to learn how they work; it might also be how to get involved in it. Therefore, the official discussion will be followed by an informal part, during which possibilities of implementing specific actions will be explored.
