Today, on 9 May, the Ukrainian human rights activist Oleksandra Matviichuk, head of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Center for Civil Liberties, will deliver the Speech to Europe 2023. Under the banner “No Peace without Freedom, No Justice without Law,” she will underline the importance of international solidarity and resistance against injustice.
After a three-year hiatus, the event, which simultaneously marks the beginning of this year's Wiener Festwochen program, returns to the Judenplatz in Vienna. The Speech to Europe allows public intellectuals to provide food for thought about the future of the European Project.
A livestream of the event will be available here:
A joint event by Wiener Festwochen, ERSTE Foundation and the Institute for Human Sciences. In Cooperation with the Jewish Museum Vienna.
