Theme: “Family Values and Policies, Religious Freedom, European Culture: Challenges and Opportunities in Central Europe Today” – Round Table Meeting in Budapest, Monday 24th October 2016
Following the Vienna Round table discussion held on 8th July 2016 that launched the Central Europe Initiative, some 18 politicians, experts, academics and NGO representatives from five nations gathered in a round table discussion in Budapest. The initiative aims at bringing together representatives from the realms of politics, religion, academia and NGOs from Central European nations – particularly post-communist countries of the Vysegrad group – to address contemporary challenges affecting European societies and form a common platform searching for solutions based on a shared affirmation of the role of the family in society, the significance of European cultural legacy and the essential dimension of religious freedom.
