The new educational program of Libek, the „Introduction to the Studies of Totalitarianism“, has started in Libek this week.
The participants in the program were welcomed by Miloš Nikolić, the president of Libek.
The program is an important upgrade to the educational programs of Libek. The „Introduction to the Studies of Totalitarianism“ opens up a new opportunity for intellectual development of the participants and empowers them in their efforts to promote a free and responsible society.
The topic, relevant in the light of the new authoritarian populist trends in the Western world, will be covered from a multidisciplinary perspective – historical, political, economic, psychological, and legal aspect. In addition, the role and position of culture, science and religion in totalitarian thought and practice will be taken in consideration, to present a wider picture. The goal of the program is to provide the participants with basis for critical analysis of contemporary trends. To achieve this, the program starts with the past – the totalitarian and authoritarian trends of the mid twentieth century.
The first lecture was held by Vladimir Petrović, a historian and a Senior Fellow of the Institute for Contemporary History of Serbia. The topic of the opening lecture was the definition of totalitarianism, its characteristics, and the ascent to power of totalitarian regimes.
During the program, the students will have chance to take part in several interactive activities, besides the lectures. An important part of the course will be the guided walk – „The Century of Terror“, which will lead the participants through location in Belgrade which are relevant to the topic of the program.
