Women at the top: transformation of Lithuania’s political culture or excuse to do nothing?

Kazimira Prunskienė, Ingrida Šimonytė, Irena Degutienė. They all served – or will serve – as Lithuania’s prime minister / BNS, LRT

Women stand at the helm of all the three parties that are looking to form the government after Lithuania’s recent parliamentary election. But women in top positions could also serve as an alibi to ignore overall gender inequalities, observers say.

The new parliament, Seimas, will have 103 male and 38 female members. Although an increase of 5 points, women will still make up only 27 percent of MPs.

„The election of parties with women leaders could mark a change in political culture“, believes Natalija Mažeikienė, a professor at Vytautas Magnus University.

Renewed 2020 Autumn Semester Timetable

RENEWED 2020 AUTUMN SEMESTER TIMETABLE PROGRAMMES AND COURSES

IN ACCORDANE WITH https://www.vdu.lt/en/important-information-to-students-about-start-of-ay-2020-2021/

Regarding upcoming Academic Year 2020/2021

Dear International Students,

on behalf of Vytautas Magnus University (VMU), we would like to express our appreciation for your decision to join our university community. We would like to share our current plans for the upcoming autumn semester 2020.

The academic year at VMU will start as usual on 31 August. We prefer face-to-face activities to the online mode. If needed, some of the activities at the beginning might take place online. Still, we are ready and fully equipped to deal with all possible scenarios: resumed spread of the virus, national and international restrictions, and other circumstances that may force us to move online during the autumn semester.

We allow international students who experience difficulties entering Lithuania to attend studies using online tools and, if necessary, on an individual basis, until the end of October or until most of them have arrived in Lithuania.

Please note that Lithuania is among the safest countries in the World in terms of COVID-19. We advise you to continuously check information regarding visa issuance policy (information provided by the visa center and the Lithuanian Embassy at your country of residence). VMU is eagerly waiting for you to arrive and join our community in the autumn semester 2020.

In case of any matters that require immediate attention, you are welcome to contact the VMU International Study Unit (for degree students, studies@vdu.lt), the Erasmus Mobility Unit (for Erasmus+ exchange students, erasmus@vdu.lt) and the International Cooperation Department (for other inquiries, international@vdu.lt).

Algis Krupavičius the public continues to rally around the government. But for how long?

Public opinion is inertia based. This truth is known to every starting sociologist or political scientist. As such, in the current context, from the perspective of public opinion, there are at least two pieces of news for the government. The good – the popularity of ruling (the prime minister’s) parties in most European countries, compared to pre-pandemic ratings, has grown. Not to the same extent everywhere, but in most countries. Even now, it continues to increase a little. But not by much. Overall, across 21 European countries, it has risen by 4%, when comparing surveys between February and May.
