Almost four years after the Euromaidan protests have started in Kyiv the violent conflict in Eastern Ukraine remains a fundamental geopolitical challenge for Europe, and continues to show repercussions in many EU member states, including the Netherlands.
Since January this year, Ukrainian citizens can travel to the European Union without visa. On the ground however, the conflict continues. Clashing memory politics and opposing (media) constructions of cultural identities seem to have further deepened the rifts in the country and the whole region.
This evening follows up on a similar discussion in spring 2015, when the images of the Euromaidan were still fresh. More than two years later panellists will discuss what has happened since. Is there a perspective for cultural reference points and narratives that would bridge rather than expand divides in Ukrainian society?
Price: 7.50 euro, or reduced fee 5.00 euro
