(PONARS Eurasia and IERES) On January 6, 2021, protestors carried out a violent attack at the US Capitol in an attempt to overturn Donald Trump’s defeat in the 2020 United States presidential elections. In this upcoming PONARS Eurasia event, scholars from across the United States and Eurasia will explore how the recent storming of the US Capitol was viewed from Eurasia, and what comparisons with Eurasia can teach us about American democracy.
