Social and Economic Consequences of the War in Ukraine
12 April, 18:00 PM
European House, Jungmannova 745/24, Nové Město
Registration required 

Join our conversation with Markéta GREGOROVÁ (Czech MEP), Aleš Chmelař (Deputy Minister for European Affairs at the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs), Wojciech Przybylski (editor-in-chief of Visegrad Insight), and Pavel Havlíček (Marcin Król Fellow at Visegrad Insight, Research Fellow of AMO), moderated by Luboš Palata (EU editor of Deník), on the social and economic consequences of the war in Ukraine for Central and Eastern European countries and the EU. 

The war against Ukraine is already having considerable economic consequences for the EU and the CEE — inflation or currency issues to mention just the most visible. It has also tremendously influenced  the societal and demographic wellbeing of CEE and the larger EU.

  • What other consequences can we expect?
  • What measures the EU and governments should adopt to avoid the economic problems?
  • What can be done to ease societal questions in the upcoming futures?

The meeting will take place on 12 April 2022 at 18:00 – 19:15 in the European House (Jungmannova 745/24, Nové Město) and is organised by Visegrad Insight, Res Publica Foundation (Warsaw, Poland) and co-funded by the European Parliament.

The discussion is part of a larger project on the topic of democratic security engaging Members of the European Parliament and offering solid journalism and open discussion in response to the deteriorating state of public debate, the lack of information sovereignty, limited trust in democratic institutions and political polarisation undermining support for democratic values in the region. It is supported by the European Parliament.

This discussion is an in-person event and is expected to last 75 minutes. The number of seats is limited – we therefore will accept only guests who have registered in advance.

To confirm your participation please fill in the registration form by EOB on 12 April 2022.

We are looking forward to hosting you at the discussion!
