Europe 1989–2019: How to Sustain the Path Towards Europe Whole and Free?
Co-organized by the Václav Havel Library, the Czech Embassy in Belgium, the Czech Permanent Representation to the European Union and the Czech Centre in Brussels.
House of European History, Rue Belliard 135, Brussels
Thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Velvet Revolution, the conference will summarise and analyse the transformation of Europe achieved so far. The dream of Europe “Whole and Free” seems to be fading away, despite the historic enlargements of NATO and the European Union. Besides Russia’s coercive actions to prevent its neighbours from choosing this vision for themselves, there are new challenges stemming from the EU’s internal developments, including Brexit.
Confirmed guests: Commissioner Věra Jourová, commissioner Frans Timmermans, former Polish Prime Minister and currently MEP Marek Belka, MEPs Alexandr Vondra, Nathalie Loiseau and Michal Šimečka, the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Director Jamie Fly.
Chaired by: Michael Žantovský, Director of Václav Havel Library
