|Év / Year||2020|
The world is changing rapidly and many challenges are being faced in Europe today, as well as increasing political divides. There are industry 4.0, democracy crisis, social division and ethnicity crisis, and, most recently, health and safety issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many Europeans fear the future as they no longer suppose they will be able to maintain employed while the global economy will be in a deep crisis as a result of previously mentioned. This fear is natural as it always comes in times of large technological changes and today, many are talking about the fourth industrial revolution in the process, bringing automation, digitization, and robotization using modern smart technologies. Thus, the employment and overall wealth seem to be in danger once again and the situation appears even more serious if we take into account all the other challenges Europe is currently facing.
The international conference “The Twenties of the Twenty-First Century: Liberal Answers to Anti-Liberal Challenges” organised by the Hungarian Europe Society, supported by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom was held online on 6 November 2020.
