Speaker(s): Professor Anne Applebaum

Recorded on 12 March 2013 at Old Theatre, Old Building

The nations of the region we called “Eastern Europe” were once closely linked, so much so that West Europeans had trouble distinguishing them. But since 1989 they have made different choices and taken different paths. Are there lessons which can be learned from the East European experience of reform?

Professor Anne Applebaum is the Philippe Roman Chair in History and International Affairs for the 2012-2013 academic year.
