23rd Forum 2000 Conference under the title "Recovering the Promise of 1989" has just been launched! At the Opening Ceremony, a special address was given by Jakub Klepal, Zdeněk Hřib, Ivan Havel and Tawakkol Karman. They reflected upon 30 years of freedom and raised the main topics for this year's Forum 2000 Conference. The official program was enriched with the musical performance of Lavon Volski.
Tawakkol Karaman at the Opening Ceremony: „Peace means many things. It is the security from fear, hunger, destitution and poverty. It means freedom. Freedom and security are complementary. Hence, comprehensive security can only be achieved in an atmosphere of freedom and human rights.“
