Discussion with Howard Dean in Bratislava

On January 25, 2018, the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the Institute for Public Affairs (IVO) organized a public discussion in Bratislava with Howard Dean, a member of the NDI Board of Directors, former Vermont Governor and presidential candidate in 2004, political commentator and activist. In his speech, the leading US public leader addressed the issues of strengthening the transatlantic consensus on democracy, the current political situation in the US and Europe, and developments in the world. He then responded to many questions asked. 


IVO and NDI, in cooperation with partners from Poland and Hungary, carry out a research project focused on the factors of civic and political participation of young people, their value orientations, identity and interest about politics, and the wider public engagement.
