The Future of Democracy: Strengthening Liberal Values, Institutions and Procedures at Global, European, Regional and National Levels – online conference of the Hungarian Europe Society – Date: 17 March 2022, Thursday   CONFERENCE RECORDINGS   The Hungarian Europe Society has previously organised webinars and conferences about major social and political problems which have recently emerged in our new, uncertain times. Most significantly, liberal democracy has been under attack worldwide in national and regional public arenas as well as through the increasing international geopolitical race between the democratic Western world and strengthening (semi)-authoritarian regimes. The beginning of the twenties of the 21st century has brought up new risks and threats to the surface: environmental emergency, an unknown pandemic, migration, growing economic inequalities, the contradictions of a post-truth era, ideological/cultural as well as social/geographic polarisation and fragmentation, extreme right-wing identity politics, and soon. We have two particular focuses which comprehensively incorporate the above mentioned themes. First, the Conference on the Future of Europe that was launched in May 2021 works with an open agenda and its settings let participants discuss all kinds of policy issues as well as legal and institutional renovations. Second, the Summit for Democracy, invented by the Biden administration, goes beyond transatlantic relations regarding its more ambitious, global scope in order to bring together democratic states for action worldwide. Both big exercises give civil groups, think tanks and citizens the chance to interfere and influence conceptual considerations and practical outputs before the end of the deliberations.   Program: 10.00 – 10.15 Participants Connect to Online Platform 10.15 – 10.30 Welcome Address István Hegedűs, Chairman, Hungarian Europe Society, Budapest Detmar Doering, Head of Prague Office of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, Prague 10.30 – 12.30 Morning session: The European Union: Fast Forward or a New Sclerosis?

Embedded thumbnail for The Legacy of 1956, 1989 and 2004 from the Perspective of 2021 in Hungary
The Legacy of 1956, 1989 and 2004 from the Perspective of 2021 in Hungary - hybrid conference organised by the Hungarian Europe Society - Date: 22 October 2021, Friday 10:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (CET) Venue: ibis Styles Budapest Center (Rákóczi út 58., 1074 Budapest) & Zoom   1989 represents a turning point in history, both for Central Europe and the whole European continent. In East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia or Hungary, democratic opposition managed in a short period to peacefully oust communist elites that had been ruling their countries for several decades. Hence, between 1989 and 1991 the new political elites were able to reunify successfully with a democratic neighbour (Germany) or build the democratic foundations of their states (Czechia, Poland, Hungary). The German reunification in 1990 itself can be considered as the preliminary step of the integration of Central Europe with the rest of the continent. Meanwhile, the democratic and economic transitions of the 1990s constituted necessary preconditions for Central European countries to achieve their accession to the Euro-Atlantic organizations such as the European Union and NATO. The transition was sometimes painful but successful, as 2004 became the symbol of unity of the European continent with the biggest ever European Union enlargement.  Today it is particularly important to recall the legacy of democratic transition of 1989 and the largest European integration of 2004 when nationalism, populism, and authoritarian trends are on the rise in Europe, particularly in Central European states and undermines the unity of the EU. Indeed, this legacy may serve as a crucial source of inspiration for activities aiming at the reinvigoration of European values.     The main goal of our project EUritage is to remind the European citizens about the importance of democratic transition of Central Europe and its accession to the EU and the values (liberal democracy, rule of law, civic national identity, free market economy) underpinning these processes. The same values make the foundations of the Union.   Agenda 10.30 Welcome: István Hegedűs (chairman, Hungarian Europe Society) 10.35 Historic Perspectives - Hungary at the Crossroads Speaker: Gergely Romsics (historian, Institute of History at the Research Centre for Humanities, Budapest) Discussant: István Hegedűs (chairman, Hungarian Europe Society) 11.15 Video presentation: “A European Success Story?
