The West in Donald Trump’s Era

Date of event: 9.10. 2018

The Prague Centre for Transatlantic relation of the CEVRO Institute (PCTR) in cooperation with the Festival of Democracy 2018, Associated Program of the Forum 2000 Conference, invites you to a public lecture “The West in Donald Trump´s Era”. The lecture took place on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, from 5:00 pm in the atrium of the CEVRO Institute (Jungmannova 17, Prague 1).

For the last hundred years, the U.S. determined the value-based security and economic frame of the West. Globalization and a redistribution of power in the world as well as the comeback of realpolitik and trade wars – that all raises concerns about the future. President Trump dominates the public space – from an offensive twitter communication to a trans-actional concept of diplomacy. What is the future of the West? What will be the role of the U.S.? And what will be the role of their allies? Are we entering an era of a win-win world as prophets of globalization believe, or we are just heading towards a new version of the old “zero-sum game”?

The panellists were Amichai Magen, Joshua Muravchik and Dan Schueftan and Jan Surotchak.

The event was introduced and moderated by Alexandr Vondra, the Director of PCTR.

The Working language was English (interpretation will be provided). Due to organizational matters, we kindly ask you to confirm your participation by October 8, 2018.
