Among the many international panellists at the all day conference, former Russian Deputy Prime Minister and co‐founder of Russian opposition party, Union of Right Forces, Boris Nemtsov will provide the keynote address at 11:30 a.m.

The conference will examine current issues and their link with historical perspectives in Eastern‐Central Europe and Russia through panels composed of international academics, journalists, historians and activists.

“The subject of this conference is extremely topical. The conference offers Canadians the rare opportunity to directly engage with some of the extraordinary individuals who are active in affecting issues and examining historical perspectives in the region ,” says conference organizer and award winning documentary filmmaker, Marcus Kolga.
