Seminar: The path to democracy

Serbia, Hungary and the Czech Republic have all come a long way from the time when communism was overthrown. But the path from transition to consolidation of democracy is long and difficult. Where do we stand today, in the three countries? What can we learn from the past? And, is there something that could have been done differently?

Benedicte Berner, Vice Chair of the Board of Civil Rights Defenders, will look into the difficult aspects of transition in three countries that share a past but have chosen somewhat different paths into the future.

Four panellists will share their analysis and thoughts:

Borka Pavicevic and Tanja Petovar from Serbia, Jan Urban from the Czech Republic and Miklos Haraszti from Hungary.

Time: Thursday, 14 March at 9:00 to 10:30 (coffee / tea and sandwiches from 8.30)
Location: Civil Rights Defenders, Stora Nygatan 26, Stockholm

Our office is situated on the second floor and the building lacks ramps, elevators and handicap-accessible bathrooms. If you have special needs, please contact us and we will find a solution.
