In the years following Russia’s annexation of Crimea, the state’s turn towards nationalist ideology, based on traditional values, has shaped the formation and enforcement of anti-extremism policies. The move away from state secularism has led to the introduction of explicitly ideological articles into the criminal code. The enforcement of anti-extremism laws over radical groups has also changed greatly. Dr. Alexander Verkhovsky will examine these shifts in philosophy, and what new course they may indicate the Russian state has charted.

Speakers

Alexander Verkhovsky, Director, Sova Center for Information and Analysis
