Quo Vadis Central Europe?

A discussion within the framework of the annual conference Forum 2000, dealing with the topic of the identity of contemporary Central Europe.

In a region that witnessed the revival of democracy a quarter of a century ago after decades of totalitarianism, there is once again a growing chorus of political voices calling for the closure of national borders and for a reassessment of the political orientation towards western democracy. The rhetoric of these political elements is a combination of anti-liberalism, xenophobia and antisemitism, dormant for many years.

What is the context for the crisis of democracy in Central Europe and what paths could it take? Among the invited guests are the historian Shlomo Avineri (Israel), the sociologist Jacques Rupnik (France), the journalist Konstanty Gebert (Poland) and the political analyst Péter Krekó (Hungary). The discussion will be moderated by Irena Kalhousová (London School of Economics and Political Science) and will be held in English with simultaneous translation into Czech.

Free entry.
