Legacies of Colonialism in the Nordic Countries

How are the legacies of colonialism dealt with in the Nordic Countries? What kind of discussions are taking place in the countries? What can we learn from their experience?


Join us in discussing these themes on Friday 25 January from 2 PM to 4 PM at Paasitorni (Paasivuorenkatu 5 A, Helsinki)! The event is free and open to the general public and no registration is needed.
