Panel Discussion with Heinz Fischer and Joachim Gauck


On Monday, 15 January 2018, 6 pm, in the University of Vienna's Audimax, Hajo Boomgaarden will take part in a discussion about the worth of democracy.

In 2018, Austria celebrates 100 years of democracy – time to critically analyse our democracy and talk about its future. This is what the University of Vienna’s semester question in the winter semester is about:

After a short introduction by former Austrian President Heinz Fischer, the former German Federal President Joachim Gauck will give a keynote speech on the topic.

Subsequently, our very own Hajo Boomgaarden (and others) will take part in a panel discussion.
