The second annual Finnish-Russian Civic Forum, FINROSFORUM 2008, was held in the island-fortress of Sveaborg (Suomenlinna) on 9-10 June 2008. The event brought together around 40 speakers and some 100 members of the audience from Russia, Finland, Estonia, and elsewhere. The discussion centered on the question of human rights and democracy in Russia.
The seminar received ample media coverage. A selection of articles about the event is available on our website at http://www.finrosforum.fi/?p=1113. More coverage will follow. A gallery of photos taken by Andrey Kolomoisky (Vyborgskie Vedomosti), Oleg Panfilov (Centre for Journalism in Extreme Situations), Kirill Reznik (Spektr), and Mikko Torvinen (TAMK) is available at http://www.finrosforum.fi/?p=1139.
