Transnational repression is a phenomenon that refers to the efforts of governments to reach across their borders to silence dissent living in the diaspora.
In this webinar, Orion Policy Institute brought together the experts working on this important issue. The experts presented their work and discussed the current trends and methods of transnational repression including digital repression, country-specific case studies (i.e., Russia, Iran, China, Turkey, and MENA countries), impacts on diaspora communities, the role of INTERPOL, efforts of facilitation by international institutions, and policy recommendations for the host countries.
We were joined by: Marcus Michaelsen, Researcher at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels Dana Moss, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Notre Dame Mathieu Deflem, Professor of Sociology at the University of South Carolina Edward Lemon, Professor at The Bush School DC, and (Moderator) Yana Gorokhovskaia, Researcher at Freedom House.
