Croatia sits at the intersection of Central and Southeastern Europe. The country's emergence as an independent state and its entry into the United Nations, NATO, and the European Union provides a unique perspective on current global crises. President Milanović served as Prime Minister of Croatia from 2011-2016, during which time he had a direct role in negotiating Croatia’s entrance into the European Union.
This discussion will explore the challenges democracies are facing today, including mass migration, human rights, populism, activist politics, and the battle of narratives during a pandemic.
Columbia University students are invited to participate in a moderated question and answer session following the discussion.
