The one-day symposium “Building on Success: The Soviet Dissident Movement and American Foreign Policy during the 1980s” examined how dissidents in the former Soviet Union, nongovernmental organizations outside the country, and Western governments interacted to open closed governments and societies to democratic reform. The symposium examined the guiding principles of those groups in hopes that their successful experience could be applied to solving problems beyond the Soviet Union.
