Carles Puigdemont is a Catalan politician who served as the President of Catalonia between 2016 and 2017. Under his leadership, the Catalan government organised an independence referendum, in which Mr Puigdemont backed the secession of Catalonia from Spain. Following the crackdown against the independence movement carried out by Spanish authorities, Mr Puigdemont currently lives in Belgium, and he is member of the European Parliament.
In light of the significance of this memory dimension to the Russian military invasion of Ukraine, the virtual roundtable will address not only the relevance of memory politics in leading up to the war, but also the further challenges the war is likely to pose for memory politics in the future. We would like to explore this with regard to the immediate context of Russian-Ukrainian relations, but also with regard to repercussions in other European regions (e.g. Western Balkans), as well as more general implications at the international level.
