Talk with Dr. D. Sagatienė „Memory laws in the Baltic States“

Do you want to understand the Baltic region inside-out in the context of Russian war in Ukraine?

Are you curious, why the Baltic states still are the main supporters of Ukraine? Dr. Dovilė Sagatienė's new report offers a comprehensive look into the memory laws of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania since 1990, the challenges in implementing certain legislation and the memory laws’ implications for European memory politics and the future stability of the region after the war.

From defining crucial historical events to regulating societal memory, the report dives into the nuances of mnemonic legal regulations and their impact on societal narratives. The report also explores how these laws navigate between preserving historical truths and safeguarding against harmful ideologies.
