Stress-testing the European Union: The EU and the Global Financial Crisis 
20 Years After: What next for Europe 'whole and free'?
13 Oct - 13 Oct, 2009
 Global Labor Migration and its Impact on Asia

Hosted at the Raiffeisen Zentralbank in Vienna, Austria

Keynote Speakers:
John Kornblum - Senior Counselor, Noerr Stiefenhofer Lutz, Berlin and Former United States Ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany
Ewald Nowotny - Governor, Austrian National Bank, Vienna
Jan Urban - Professor, New York University in Prague, and founding member of the Civic Forum
Franz Vranitzky - Corporate Director, Magna International and Former Federal Chancellor of Austria, Vienna

The changes that occurred following the end of the Cold War - beginning with the cutting of the fence on the Austria-Hungary boarder in June 1989, followed shortly thereafter by the fall of the Berlin Wall - ushered in a new era in relations among the nations of Europe and between those nations and the rest of the world. One result, an increase of solidarity within Europe, took on various forms including reunification between East and West Germany, increased trade on the continent, and eventually the accession of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe to previously Western European bodies such as NATO and the EU.

As alliances shifted and relations (political, economic, cultural, et al.) between the nations of Central and Eastern Europe and the rest of the world changed so dramatically in the following twenty years, what were the efforts that contributed most to these shifts? While relations between the "new," "old," and prospective EU member states can certainly be said to have improved in those twenty years, has this improvement - and the one felt across the Atlantic - come at the cost of relations with Russia? Looking at the global challenges facing us today, what lessons can be learned from the cold war to aid in building unity in the next twenty years?

This meeting will culminate with the Henry Brandon Memorial Lecture on Contempory European History.

* the combined alumni of Salzburg Global Seminar and Fellows of the 21st Century Trust
