On Wednesday, April 28, CEU President and Rector Michael Ignatieff will be featured on the video-podcast series “Europa gefühlsecht”, hosted by Austrian communication scientist Dr. Nana Walzer. The series is an initiative of Europe Direct and JEF Austria.
During the event, Ignatieff will offer insights regarding recent events around CEU, as well as the role of Europe, politics, media and education in relationship to the safeguarding of democracy, rule of law and human rights. Located between Eastern and Western Europe, CEU has been confronted with some of the most dangerous methods of anti-democratic and authoritarian communication, namely disinformation campaigning and conspiracy theories.
The episode, “Europa gefühlsecht – The 4th estate”, addresses chances and challenges for further democratic development of Europe, targeting especially the role of media and education in this process.
