“World in Focus”
A host of outstanding intellectuals and experts will take part in the “World in Focus” – a two day international gathering in Warsaw. Mark Leonard, the author of the bestselling book “Why Europe will run the 21st century”, Ralf Fücks, a leading German foreign policy expert, and Judy Dempsey, former International Herald Tribune journalist and frequent contributor to the New York Times, will debate contemporary threats to European and global security in these times of uncertainty, sometimes described as the world 3.0. Political scientist and renowned think-tanker Ivan Krastev, will speak with Sylvie Kauffmann, editorial director at Le Monde, about whether the European Union is doomed to disintegrate and how we can restore faith in it. Finally, we will discuss Poland’s place in Europe and its current development in these interesting times with a diverse range of intellectuals.
We will discuss the most pressing challenges facing Europe today and, building on ECFR’s recent publication Connectivity Wars, will explain how migration, economics, the internet and finance are becoming the geo-economic battlegrounds of the future – domains where countries and non-state actors will fight for power and domination. Together with the Ombudsman Office we will talk about the state of human rights in Central Europe 25 years after the end of the communism. We will discuss the future of open societies in an era of terrorism and migration. We will also meet refugees based in Poland, giving attendees an unprecedented opportunity to hear first hand some of the stories and experiences of the displaced that have arrived on European shores. Admirers of the cinema will get a chance to see the Danish movie “At Home in the World”, which deals with the problems five refugee children face integrating into a new society.
In the year of the US elections we will discuss the likely future scenarios and the possible consequences of the American choice, including transatlantic relations. We will also be focusing on the US’ age old rival – Russia – and take a closer look at how Kremlin propaganda works and what its influence is in Russia as well as in the EU.
Moreover, we will investigate ways in which states can support national enterprises and try to answer the question of whether we need to restore the balance between Polish and international capital in our country. We will also talk about European neighbours, nuclear disarmament and Islamic radicalisation in Europe.
The “World in Focus” will provide an intellectually stimulating environment for professors, thinkers, and students alike, by encouraging open exchange and hosting top quality speakers.
The two day event will be hosted at the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, an exceptional institution that has been awarded the European Museum of the Year 2016.
