Adam Michnik and Fernando Savater in conversation with Maite Pagazaurtundúa

The Battle for Europe

– Venue: Campus de Santa Cruz la Real, IE University, Aula Magna

The Spanish philosopher and essayist Fernando Savater, renowned for his extensive work on Basque terrorism and winner of the Octavio Paz prize, is joined by the Polish historian Adam Michnik, director of Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper, a political activist who has been granted numerous civic and professional recognitions including being named a Chevalier de la Legion d'honneur. They agree that the time has come to join forces and rekindle the spirit of the European ideal and face the threat of radical nationalism. These two icons of liberal thought and defenders of Europe share their concerns with Maite Pagazaurtundúa MEP, the former president of the Fundación Víctimas del Terrorismo, who provides her very personal view of the destructive impact extreme nationalism can have when it is nourished by extortion and violence.

Simultaneous translation from Polish into Spanish and from Spanish into Polish.
