* Thats because central and eastern states were children of the age of nationalism that followed the breakup of Europes empires



Why the EU should not be taken for granted, why the response to the refugee crisis will define its future and why elites in Brussels are so mistrusted were the questions Ivan Krastev tried to answer in his book After Europe and discussed during this event at the Vaclav Havel Library. Chaired by Michael Žantovský.

Ivan Krastev is chairman of the Centre for Liberal Strategies in Sofia and permanent fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences, Vienna. He sits on numerous boards and is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times.

Organised by The Vaclav Havel Library in cooperation with the Bulgarian Embassy in the Czech Republic


The publication is not an editorial. It reflects solely the point of view and argumentation of the author. The publication is presented in the presentation. Start in the previous issue. The original is available at:




  1. Ivan Krastev is one of the sharpest and most elegant political writers to emerge from eastern Europe in recent years. In this slim volume, which is a treasure chest of striking observations and colorful vignettes, the Bulgarian commentator brings a distinctly East European sense of tragedy to Europe’s multiple crises.”—Sunday Times

  2. o read this book is to be in the company of one of the great European minds of today. With his characteristic combination of perceptiveness and sympathy, Ivan Krastev gives us in this learned essay just what we need to understand Europe’s crisis—and to contemplate our own.”

  3. He concludes by reflecting on the ominous political, economic, and geopolitical future that would await the continent if the Union itself begins to disintegrate.

  4. From the unexpected return of nationalism and socialism to the rise of populism and eruption of “demographic panic,” this wide-ranging dialogue examines key social and political dynamics likely to shape Europe’s politics in the years to come.
