In 1932-33, nearly four million Ukrainians died of starvation, having been deliberately deprived of food. Anne Applebaum will explore how and why this happened and explain its lasting importance. 

Anne Applebaum (@anneapplebaum) is a columnist for the Washington Post and a Pulitzer-prize winning historian. She is also Professor of Practice at the London School of Economics’s Institute of Global Affairs where she runs Arena, a program on disinformation and 21st century propaganda. Formerly a member of the Washington Post editorial board, she has also worked as the Foreign and Deputy Editor of the Spectator magazine in London, as the Political Editor of the Evening Standard, and as a columnist at Slate and at several British newspapers, including the Daily and Sunday Telegraphs. From 1988-1991 she covered the collapse of communism as the Warsaw correspondent of the Economist magazine and the Independent newspaper. This event marks the publication of her newest book, Red Famine: Stalin’s War on Ukraine.

Erik Berglof (@ErikBerglof ) is the inaugural Director of the Institute of Global Affairs (IGA) at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

The Institute of Global Affairs (@LSEIGA ), its Global Policy Lab and eight constituent centres bring together LSE faculty and students from across departments to design research-based and locally rooted solutions to global challenges.
