About the Event

What power does Europe still have, for example against heavyweight Russia? KU Leuven political science professor Steven Van Hecke devotes a new essay to it and discusses it with Lien Verpoest, professor of Diplomatic History, and with the Belarusian author Sasja Filipenko, who lives in exile because of his criticism of Lukashenko and Putin.

'If you want to know what modern, young Russia thinks,' says Nobel Prize winner Svetlana Aleksievich, 'read Sasha Filipenko!'. Or come and listen to him in Leuven.
