Roundtable: Irreversible Actions in Politics (Dr. Andris Banka, Prof. Dr. Roman Dubasevych, Natalia Iost)

The Baltic Sea Region is an area where changes mostly occur within a set of intertwining transregional parameters. By focusing on the aftereffects of transformations, the roundtable – as part of the joint lecture series “Irreversible – The Manifestations of Change” – inquires about irreversible actions in politics: processes that lack the chance of a turn-around. In literary theory, the term ‘peripety’ signifies a reversal of action: How do (political) narrations model and maybe alter the irreversible? How do geopolitical tipping points affect subsequent generations?

Organisation and moderation
