Stopping the Long Arm: Building Responses to Transnational Repression

Grant Year: 2021


Nate Schenkkan, Yana Gorokhovskaia, and Annie Wilcox Boyajian will identify approaches to counter “transnational repression”: the coercion or intimidation by authoritarian states of members of diasporas and dissident communities living abroad. They will conduct case studies of the policies and practices in countries where targets of transnational repression activities reside, including Canada, Germany, South Africa, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States, Thailand, Turkey, and Ukraine. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
