Victor Erofeev talks at this year’s M100 Sanssouci Colloquium

“Western democracy now looks poor. It is like a tree without roots and with falling leaves. Post-Soviet nations such as Ukraine and Georgia or pro-European opposition movement in Russia aim to follow Europe sharing the same values. But the Western democracy has become a simulacrum and to run after it is the same as to run after a ghost.”

Victor Erofeev, Writer, Russia

Prof. Dr. Andreas Rödder holds keynote at M100 Sanssouci Colloquium

“Europe should learn by experience. Morally overstraining the idea of an „ever closer union“ has pushed up the idea of the European Union too far to an ideology. In this way it has lost the ability for self-criticism and correction – and thereby it endangers its unique historical achievements. Europe needs a smart mix of realism and ideas – a flexible union relying on different member states, since they are (and most likely remain to be) the guardians of democracy.”

Prof. Dr. Andreas Rödder, Professor of Contemporary History, Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany
