European Challenges | Debates

Artwork by Dan Perjovschi

The European Challenges series, at the crossroads of disciplines, concerns, and viewpoints, aims at stimulating and enriching public debate on topical or long-standing controversial issues Europe has to face. Organised at the Pompidou Center, these regular debates revive the tradition of the public agora.

Save the date for the upcoming debate on 14 November 2019. Following the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall, we will discuss the consequences of this historical event both for the West and the East, the end of the bipolar order, the new world of "no alternative", and the troubled relationship between the two Europes.
