Debates on Europe: Budapest & Beyond

Defending Intellectual Freedom

4-7 May 2021

The first event the "Debates on Europe" series took place in Budapest in 2012. Meanwhile, almost a decade on, Hungarian "illiberal democracy" has developed into one of the biggest challenges facing the European integration project.

So, it is high time to revisit the issue of Hungary’s role in Europe. In five events from 4 to 7 May, Zsófia Bán, Győző Ferencz, Anna Gács, Timothy Garton Ash, Rüdiger Görner, Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger and other wonderful participants will discuss the importance of academic and artistic freedom and what it actually is.

You can view the full programme here. The events will take place exclusively online and will be available on the website and YouTube channel. For general updates, please follow Twitter. No registration is necessary.

"Debates on Europe" ist eine Kooperation der S. Fischer Stiftung und der Deutschen Akademie für Sprache und Dichtung
