The Berlin Wall 25 Years On: Its Meaning, Then and Now
A collaborative campus panel
Tuesday, November 11 at 4:00 p.m.
Auditorium, Hesburgh Center for International Studies
This faculty panel will explore the significance of the momentous events of 1989 in Eastern Europe and how they impact international affairs today. How has the meaning of the Berlin Wall changed over time? What lessons can we learn about the role of nonviolent political change and non-violent action? Have the West’s post-Cold War policies in the region contributed to the current Russian-NATO confrontation?
