About populism in the framework of "Dialogue in the middle of Europe"

On April 8-9, 2017, Grigorij Mesežnikov attended an annual “Dialogue in the middle Europe”, a conference that takes place in Brno in the framework of the developing Czech-German process of mutual understanding. The 26th Brno symposium was co-organized by Ackermann-Gemeinde from Germany and the Bernard Bolzano Society from the Czech Republic with the support of the city of Brno municipality. Among participants of the event there were representatives of three other V4 countries, including Slovakia.

The main topic of this year's debate was populism in Europe and in the world (“The Power of Word: The Key for Understanding of the World and the Toy for Populists”). IVO president spoke at panel focused on the efforts of democratic forces to neutralize the negative impact of activities of populist politicians.
