Europese dialogen van Václav Havel 2019

ENGLISH BELOW

Hoe is Europa veranderd vanaf het jaar 1989? Hoe kunnen we gemeenschappelijke en vrije ruimte vasthouden? Het Europese Dialogenproject van Václav Havel volgt al lang het potentieel van dialoog dat Václav Havel beschouwde als een integraal onderdeel van de ontwikkeling van de democratische organisatie van de samenleving. Het project beoogt een debatruimte te creëren door middel van jaarlijkse conferenties om relaties tussen staten, instellingen en burgers te ontwikkelen. Dit jaar is het thema Europa 1989-2019: Hoe houden we ons op de weg naar een eenparig en vrij Europa?

Václav Havel European Dialogues is an annual international conference held in Brussels that aims to initiate and stimulate a discussion about issues determining the direction of contemporary Europe while referring to the spiritual legacy of Václav Havel.  One of Havel’s key principles was civic engagement based on a sense of responsibility for the future of one’s society and country. As a convinced European, he stressed the need to maintain the connection between the state and its institutions, and its people. For him politics was an ongoing, deeply meaningful dialogue comparable to a theatre piece.

The conference entitled „Europe 1989-2019: How to sustain the path towards Europe Whole and Free?“ aims to summarise and analyse the transformation of Europe thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Velvet Revolution.

Introduction by the Moderator of the Discussion:

Michael Žantovský, Executive Director of the Václav Havel Library 

 

18:15 First Panel:

Věra Jourová / Marek Belka / Jamie Fly

Thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Velvet Revolution, the first panel 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. Are we able to act in the face of disinformation campaigns and the rise of third actors? Do both sides of the Atlantic and their population still share the same vision?

 

19:15 Second Panel:

Frans Timmermans / Alexandr Vondra / Nathalie Loiseau / Michal Šimečka

1989 was the Year of Europe, beyond any policy planner’s dream. The second panel will explore whether 2019 brings a new momentum for the vision of 1989 and indicate the work that is still ahead of us. The new EU institutional cycle represents a new element in ongoing discussion on the future of the EU. How to sustain the path towards Europe Whole and Free? What lessons do the recent transformations of Central and Eastern European states offer? Does the EU remain united in its vision for the future? How can the EU better support the aspirations of countries striving to join?
