Crimea was among the first areas to suffer from Russian aggression. Over 10 years of occupation is a long period of time during which it is important for Ukraine not to lose the connection to the occupied peninsula and the communities on it. The enemy does not just capture our territories but also carries out historic and cultural occupation.


In this public reading, we will talk with the books about:

  • How to strengthen connections with the occupied peninsula and remember about the historic and cultural commonalities that connect us?

  • What (cultural) challenges during the future integration of this region after de-occupation will the state and civil society face, and how should we prepare for this process?

  • How to counteract the influence of Russian cultural imperialism and build a shared national identity?

In the Human Rights Programme, we have tried to trace the causal relationships between the processes launched by the Russian aggression and make sense of their impact on our future.
