PODCAST | Grazyna Szymanska-Matusiewicz | Diaspora Politics and the Vietnamese in Eastern Europe (3.29.2017)

April 25, 2017

In this lecture, Grazyna Szymanska-Matusiewicz discusses the changing patterns of political involvement of an important and surprisingly sizable part of the global Vietnamese diaspora — the Vietnamese from Central and Eastern Europe. While the Vietnamese American community has long been known for its anticommunist stance, the attitudes of Vietnamese communities in Central and Eastern Europe have been more nuanced.

Grazyna Szymanska-Matusiewicz is an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Sociology of the University of Warsaw. Her academic interests concentrate on the Vietnamese diaspora in Poland.
