For the first episode of Hilary Term 2017, The Beacon looks at Eastern Europe post-1989. Interviewing political and economic experts at UCL's School of Slavonic and East Europe Studies, Dr. Kubik and Dr. Cvrcek, as well as active campaigner Tomas Bladyniec, we examine the economic and political history, present and future of the region. This includes touching on the recent developments of the rise of far-right governments, particularly in Poland.
