At Presseclub Concordia we traditionally welcome the new year with a geopolitical forecast by political scientist Ivan Krastev. This time our intellectual new years concert already took place in December. We thank our partners at IWM, fjum and ERSTE STIFTUNG for their cooperation and for making this event possible. Our expert on foreign policy, Mirjana Tomić, was moderating the talk which was followed by a Q&A session. Ivan Krastev is one of the most influential European intellectuals and political thinkers, political scientists and author. He is chairman of the Center for Liberal Strategies in Sofia, and a permanent fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna (IWM).
