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

June 2, 2022

16.30 - 18.30

Sky Lounge, Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 1, 1090 Vienna


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 Vienna School of International Studies, 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 Susanne Frank (Humboldt University Berlin), Professor Zsuzsa Hetényi (ELTE Budapest), Katarzyna Jakubowska-Krawczyk (University of Warsaw), Professor Karel Svoboda (Charles University) and Professor Philipp Ther (University of Vienna). The discussion will be moderated by Barbara Good.
