Enric Juliana, Manuel Carvalho, Francesco Olivo and René Moerland in conversation with Miguel Molina

The Challenges of Europe After The Pandemic

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

The Covid-19 crisis has cast doubts on the strength of the European project once again. The pandemic has exposed the lack of a common policy for the challenge posed by the health emergency and, on the other hand, has led to widening the gap between the countries of the South and those of the North.

A parallel phenomenon has been the media maelstrom: the global spread of fake news has reached undue proportions. In light of this, the mainstream media has not only seen their audience numbers skyrocket, but also how, after a long time, society has acknowledged their role as guarantors of verified and diverse information.

Enric Juliana, deputy director and columnist of the newspaper La Vanguardia; Manuel Carvalho, editor of the Portuguese newspaper Público; Francesco Olivo, expert in political information for the Italian newspaper La Stampa, and René Moerland editor-in-chief of the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad will address these concerns. The debate will be moderated by Miquel Molina, Associate Editor of La Vanguardia.

René Moerland will participate live by videoconference, while the others participant will be on stage

Spanish philosopher and essayist Fernando Savater, renowned for his extensive work on Basque terrorism and winner of the Octavio Paz Prize, is joined by 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 Légion d’Honneur. They agree that the time has come to join forces, to 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 views on stage.
