Kara-Murza, chairman of the Boris Nemtsov Foundation for Freedom, vice chairman of Open Russia, prominent political activist and winner of the 2018 Civil Courage Prize, will address the truth behind the persistent stereotypes that have governed Western understanding of Russia and Western approaches toward it. Would the Russian people thrive outside of an authoritarian, strong-handed government? What is actually happening on the ground in Russia’s political scene? How would the country vote in a fair and free election? What is the view of young people? And what do civic institutions need to support change?
