The Hungarian V4 presidency is organising an international conference entitled “The Future of Europe” in the Castle Garden Bazaar, Budapest between 23-25 January.
The conference “represents an extraordinary opportunity to analyse the full array of political and cultural processes as well as to put our identity-creating cultural values in the limelight which, in addition to contributing to shape the present and the future of Europe, the most exciting and most lively scene of our civilisation, also define the elbow room of the countries of Central Europe within and beyond the European Union”, according to the organisers.
At the event leading politicians, renowned professors and well-known public figures will share their views with each other and with an audience of visitors. The five panel discussions revolve around these fundamental issues: Culture Wars, Clashes of Cultures in Europe, Migration, Resettlement and the Future of Europe, Geopolitical Challenges -A European Army, NATO and the Borders of Europe, “Is Artificial Intelligence our Future?” and Visegrad Four – the Engine of Europe’s Economy.
According to the agenda, the speakers list includes political commentator, publisher, blogger and journalist Milo Yiannopoulos; author, commentator and sociologist Frank Füredi; publisher, publicist and philosopher Götz Kubitschek; philosopher Pascal Bruckner, author of France and Islam; Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto and Sandor Csanyi, Chairman and CEO of OTP Bank Group.
