“Europa gefühlsecht – The 4th estate” addresses chances and challenges for the further democratic development of Europe, targeting especially the role of media and education in this process. CEU is located at center stage between Eastern and Western Europe and has been confronted with some of the most dangerous methods of anti-democratic and authoritarian communication, namely disinformation campaigning and conspiracy theories. Prof. Dr. Michael Ignatieff gives a broad insight in the recent events around CEU, as well as into the role of Europe, politics, media and education concerning the safeguarding of democracy, rule of law and human rights.

The videopodcast-series “Europa gefühlsecht”, hosted by Austrian communication-scientist Dr. Nana Walzer, is an initiative of Europe Direct and JEF Austria.

The event will be livestreamed on CEU's youtube channel.
