CAA Greece | Lecture by Prof. Cooley: 'Nowhere to Hide?

November 3, 2021
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Europe/Athens
Off-campus

You are cordially invited to a lecture and discussion led by Prof. Alexander Cooley, Director, Harriman Institute, Columbia University

The forced landing in May 2021 of a Ryanair flight by Belorusian authorities and coerced detention of a passenger who was a dissenting journalist has spotlighted the practice of transnational repression- the targeting of political exiles and opposition figures abroad by authoritarians and their security services.

Why are these acts of transnational repression increasing in spaces like the European Union once considered absolutely safe and why has the international community failed to develop an effective response? Please join us for a conversation led by Alexander Cooley, the Claire Tow Professor of Political Science at Barnard College and Director of Columbia University’s Harriman Institute.
