CENTRAL Network - Panel Discussion

"War in Ukraine: a turning point for the relationship between Central Europe and Russia?"


Sky Lounge
Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1, 1090 Vienna

Diskussion, Round Table

The ongoing war in Ukraine is of great concern to all of us within CENTRAL, a strategic cooperation network with leading Central European research universities. As part of the network's annual Governance Board Meeting, we will therefore host a high-profile panel discussion on relations between Central Europe and Russia.



The event will begin with a keynote speech by Ambassador Emil Brix, Head of the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna, who has been stationed as a diplomat in Russia and Poland, and is an Ambassador of the CENTRAL network. The title of his keynote is: Is Russia again the tragedy of Central Europe?

The keynote will be followed by a discussion between representatives from CENTRAL universities: Professor Zsuzsa Hetényi (ELTE Budapest), Professor Karel Svoboda (Charles University Prague) and Professor Philipp Ther (University of Vienna). The discussion will be moderated by BBC correspondent Bethany Bell.



As the number of participants is limited, please register below if you would like to attend.
