Russian Émigrés and their Impact in Interwar Greece

The victory of the Bolshevik Red Army over its opponents forced thousands of Russians to abandon their homes and pursue their lives in exile. Embarking on a long period of transit, former subjects of the Russian Empire spread across the five continents and established diasporic communities, known as Russia Abroad. This presentation will focus on one of the stops on their journey ––Greece––and will attempt to reconstruct the experiences of Russian émigrés in a country afflicted by its own refugee crisis.

PRFDHR Seminar: Combining Perspective-getting with Information Delivery to Increase Public Support for Refugees, Professor Scott R. Williamson

Many Americans hold negative views of refugees, and misinformation about refugees is a common feature of American politics. Nonetheless, we know relatively little about the accuracy of Americans’ perceptions of the US refugee population, and whether countering misinformation can shape attitudes toward refugees and refugee policy. Professor Scott Williamson addresses these questions by first implementing a survey measuring Americans’ knowledge about refugees in the United States. He finds that Americans are surprisingly well-informed about the refugee population in general.

PRFDHR Seminar: The Political Economics of Green Transitions, Professor Torsten Persson

Reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases may be almost impossible without a green transition - a process of radically changing consumption and production patterns. Professor Torsten Persson and his co-author Professor Timothy Besley, put forward a model where switches in consumption and production create a dynamic complementarity that can help or hinder a green transition. In democratic societies, governments cannot commit to future policy paths and must aggregate conflicting interests across different voters.

PRFDHR Seminar: Syrian Refugees in Jordan: Parental burnout, father engagement, and family cohesion during COVID-19, Professor Catherine Panter-Brick

How do men engage with their families in contexts of forced displacement? Engaging with men as fathers is important for sustaining initiatives that seek to build cultures of peace, equity, and social inclusion. It is also important for designing interventions that enhance family cohesion, mental health, and child development. Yet in research and policy, the “father factor” has been all too often ignored. Professor Catherine Panter-Brick begins this talk with a policy brief that gives concrete examples of community-level interventions engaging with fathers to build social change.
