„European Angst“- E-book presentation and debate

Czech Centre Brussels invites you to launching of the e-book “European Angst”. The event, organized as a follow-up on a two-day conference held last December, will also include a debate on populism, extremism and euroscepticism in contemporary European societies. The launch and debate will take place on 5th September from 6:30PM in Parlamentarium in Brussels. Entry free, registration needed (see below).

This event is in follow-up of the EUROPEAN ANGST conference organized in December, which aimed to break out of the comfort zone of liberal konsensus and anter the question of how to deal with resentment, anger and anxiety which are haunting Europe by inviting controversial thinkers and creating a space for passionate debate, reflection and in-depth analysis. Participants included the writers and philosophers Slavoj Žižek, Didier Eribon, Elif Shafak and Nobel Prize winner Herta Müller, as well as over 40 students. Representing tomorrow’s decision makers, the students played an active role in the conference and drafted a manifesto on Europe’s future that was then handed over to EU officials.

Presentation of the book will be followed by a panel discussion with Jo Leinen, MEP and President of the European Movement International, Cristina Nord, Regional Head of Cultural Programmes at the Goethe-Institut Brussels, Anna-Lena Sender, Student, Erasmus-Mundus-Masters “Euroculture” (University of Göttingen and Groningen) and moderated by Joanna Nahorska, Coordinator of Events at European Endowment for Democracy.
