The Evolution of Environmental Activism in Russia

Comparative Politics Seminar
Event Format

How has environmental activism evolved in Russia over the last decade? How does the Kremlin view the growing environmental protest movement? Dr. Plantan, in conversation with Alexandra Vacroux, will discuss these questions, the impact of the foreign agent law on environmental NGOs, and the intersection between environmental activism and formal party politics ahead of the 2021 Russian Duma elections.
