In the year when Wroclaw is European City of Culture we will explore a wider aspect of culture and ask whether there is a specific European political culture or whether there are several. If there is a unifying European political culture how is it different from other political cultures? What are the origins and consequences of a political culture? Is it a thing of value or can it be restraining? The Debate this year will take place just three weeks before a referendum in the United Kingdom about whether the UK should leave the European Union. This unique political event is very important for the whole of Europe and for the Atlantic Alliance. There is much of imminent importance to debate.
Among the speakers this year will be:
- John Martin, Academic of University College London and Yale University
- Christian Davies, Journalist, renowned for his recent article in The Guardian newspaper about the state of politics in Poland today.
- Łukasz Kempara, Head of the European Parliament Information Office
- Jan Vincent Rostowski, polski i brytyjski ekonomista, od 2007 do 2013 minister finansów
The presentations from the speakers will be followed by questions and discussion from the floor.
The format is not a traditional English debate but rather a series of talks followed by discussion from the floor.
