Let op: dit programma is in het Engels.

The fall of the wall sparked a moment of hope and prosperity, things could only become better. This morning we will discuss how things stand in young European democracies in Eastern and Central Europe. Polish journalist and keynote speaker Karolina Wigura will reflect on current democratic backsliding in Poland. Her credo: ‘Want to save Europe? Learn from Poland’.

After we commemorated the fall of the wall Saturday evening in De Balie, we shake off the hangover during a recovery brunch. Together with Karolina Wigura and other panellists we discuss struggles in young European democracies as Poland, Hungary, Romania and Serbia. Why did democracy became a concept for many to distrust? Karolina Wigura calls for a move from politics of fear, which has seen the rise of the far-right, to a politics with a positive vision based on hope.

During brunch we serve scrambled eggs, toast, croissant and yoghurt. And of course, essential for a Sunday morning, coffee and tea. Note: you can also buy a ticket without brunch!
