On April 27, the NYU Chapter of European Horizons, Young Professionals in Foreign Policy New York, the Robert Bosch Foundation Alumni Association, and NYU Peer to Peer (P2P) Common Place organized a Public Event moderated by European Horizons Chair Professor Colette Mazzucelli to address “Nationalism, Populism, and the 2017 Elections: Implications for ‘Illiberal Democracy’ and Integration in the European Union.” The Public Event, convened global thought leaders from the United States and Europe for a timely discussion on the grounds of New York University’s Washington Square campus. The transatlantic conversation deliberately coincided with the conclusion of the first round of the French Presidential elections. This context provided the occasion for a moderated dialogue among panelists Drs. Andras Pap, Central European University and Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Itay Lotem, University of Westminster, and Franz Schimek, Inspector of European Schools and Chairman of the Austrian-American Educational Cooperation Association. The Public Event marks the relaunch of NYU European Horizons on the New York campus as well as the establishment of an Advisory Board for the New York University Chapter. In the years ahead, NYU European Horizons aims to cooperate with local partners, including Cultural Vistas, to organize regular gatherings of speakers visiting from the Continent. These Public Events are each filmed and edited to create short videos for viewing on the newly created NYU European Horizons YouTube Channel.
