Understanding Russia's War on Ukraine through the Holodomor

Date: November 09, 2022 

Time: 7:00pm


Location: The Vivian and David Campbell Conference Facility, Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy – 1 Devonshire Place

Speaker: Daria Mattingly, University of Cambridge and Leverhulme Early Career Fellow

In her lecture, Dr. Mattingly will explore how the Holodomor offers a key to understanding the current war in Ukraine, both from a historical perspective and by revealing parallels in the objectives, methods and outcomes. She will discuss how further studies of the Holodomor are pertinent to explaining the war and its international implications in an increasingly interconnected world.
