Rich Arnold will be discussing issues related to the hosting of the 22nd Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Some of these issues include some
International boycotts from the LGBT community and the Circassian diaspora; security issues regarding militants in the North Caucasus, Russian nationalists/ neo-Nazis, and Cossacks. Domestic issues will also be discussed, such as the vast cost of the Games, infrastructure, completion of sporting venues, ecological damage and labor rights.
Join us for this timely dialogue about the 2014 Olympics that will be held just weeks after this program.
