The Andrei Sakharov Research Center

The Andrei Sakharov Research Center for Democratic Development was founded in December 2017 at the Vytautas Magnus University (VMU) to contribute to the development of a pluralist and democratic society in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, a society based on the rule of law, respecting human rights and offering equal opportunities to each citizen to achieve his or her goals.

The Center intends to unite state-of-the-art academic research on developments in Eastern Europe and the former USSR with existing multi-disciplinary expert knowledge at VMU and wishes to stimulate multi-disciplinary and multi-national cooperation between VMU and its partners in other countries. It will allow researchers to make use of its extensive archival holdings of materials on political freedom, repression and the opposition in the region in order to gain a better understanding of the processes that are likely to have an impact on the current situation.

The Center will focus in particular on the younger generations which lack sufficient knowledge of the past to understand the present situation and its likely impact on, and implications for, the future.
