The themes of the scientific works for participating in the competition must coincide with one or several areas of research:
– the history of communist regimes and communist ideology;
– human losses as the consequence of the implementation of the ideology and policies of communist regimes (crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide);
– material and environmental damage caused by the ideology, policies and economic system of communist regimes;
– (both successful and unsuccessful) attempts by communist regimes to establish communist polities in other countries (export of revolution);
– the social, intellectual and spiritual legacy of the actions, ideology, and undertakings of communist regimes aimed at exerting influence in countries that have formerly been under the rule of communist regimes as well as in other countries.
