Book launch “New Generation Political Activism in Ukraine: 2000–2014 (Routledge, 2018)”
Presenter(s): Dr. Christine Emeran
October 13, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This book explains how socio-cultural experiences shape an individual’s choices to become an activist in the authoritarian space of post-Soviet Ukraine by applying a cultural, actor-centred approach using qualitative methods of interviews and ethnography. Using biographical narratives gathered among activists involved in the three largest protests since Ukrainian independence in 1991, it offers an account of the dynamics of individual decision making between participants in collective protest actions under repressive conditions.
