What is Central Europe? Why this sense of superiority in Western Europe when looking at this region of the Old Continent, which freed itself from Soviet rule a little over three decades ago? Is it justified? Can Central Europe, where decisions made by governments concerning crucial issues such as immigration tend to be more sensible, save the European Union from self-destruction?
Prof. Maciej Szymanowski, the director of the Felczak Institute for Polish-Hungarian Cooperation, answers those questions and others in this 35-minute video discussion with Paweł Lisicki, chief editor of the Polish conservative weekly Do Rzeczy.
Maciej Szymanowski is a lecturer at Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Hungary and a specialist in Central Europe. He is also a former journalist and a former special counsellor to the Speaker of the Polish Sejm for Central European policy.
