The resilience of Baltic and Eastern European democracies: Theoretical and methodological approaches (5 ECTS) – Riga, 19-25 March 2023
This course discusses the concept of resilience in connection to Baltic and Eastern European societies and political systems. In recent years, we have experienced the COVID-19 pandemic, hybrid threats, brutal war in Ukraine, inflation, sky-high energy prices and dropping living standards. The consequences of these events have been significant for our societies. We want to find out how security concerns interact with societal resilience. We concentrate on analyzing the key issues that determine governmentality, economic resilience, and environmental awareness. Memory politics is transforming identities, but which memory templates are the most sustainable?
