Forum 2000 opens in Prague

The 26th Forum 2000 International Conference, which focuses on threats to democracy and responses to them, opened Wednesday in Prague. A central topic on the agenda is Ukraine, which includes a high-level meeting on the country’s situation that follows up on the informal meeting of EU foreign ministers that began on Tuesday. At the Ukrainian Forum, participants will discuss issues of post-war reconstruction of Ukraine, European perspectives on Ukraine, and war crimes investigations. Other items on the agenda are China’s threat to Taiwan and the question of building global democratic unity and solidarity.

The meeting will be opened by Prime Minister Petr Fiala and will be attended by Czech political figures. Many foreign guests are also present, including Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, European Investment Bank President Werner Hoyer, journalists, analysts and human rights activists. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will attend remotely.

Forum 2000 was founded in 1997 by former Czech President Vaclav Havel, writer Elie Wiesel and Japanese philanthropist Johei Sasakawa. Their intention was to provide a space for figures from different disciplines to analyze the challenges of the new millennium.
