Organized by the Joseph Károlyi Foundation, with the support of the Institut Français , the Istituto italiano di Cultura, the Embassy of Swizerland and of the Czech Republic,  the Österrreichisches Kulturforum Budapest, Konrad Adenauer Stiftung-Budapest, Fondation Robert Schuman Paris...
The conference will explore the various different interpretations of the concept of Democracy in  various countries in Europe over the centuries, often not well known by its neighbours (« yesterday »)
....and also examine their consequences in society today and in attitudes and behaviour, including that of political leaders and governments (question : what is « leadership » in democracy ?  )
...and also in education, school systems and history teaching, trying thus to analyse the (« new » ?) bases required to develop democratic behaviour among future adults (« tomorrow »)
