Political Malaise in Central Europe: Causes and Solutions

Ppublic lecture by Jirí Pehe, Czech Republic.

June 11th, 2007, The Red House, 19:00h

Jirí Pehe, once Chief Political Advisor to former Czech President Václav Havel, is a political analyst and Director of New York University in Prague. In his lecture he argues that the current political crisis in Central Europe is due both to historical reasons and the rise of populism in the region after EU accession, as well as to a crisis of political leadership, caused by the influence of modern media on politics.

The lecture will be in English, with translation into Bulgarian.



Welcome to the [Sofia] weblog, a part of the Kakanien Revisited weblog network. The Team - Dimiter, Assen and Mira - all three PhD students in the Department of History and Theory of Culture at the Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" will try to create an image - although sometimes a faceted and incoherent one - of the Bulgarian academia, culture, ongoing events, ideas, realities and virtual spaces. All of you - our readers - are warmheartedly invited to join us in this endeavor with your comments and suggestions.
