HE Borut Pahor, President, Republic of Slovenia
Chair: Dr Robin Niblett CMG, Director, Chatham House
The president of Slovenia discusses the challenges that the European continent is facing as well as his vision for the global positioning and future of Europe.
Focusing on both the Western Balkan region as well as the wider EU, he makes the case for strengthening the rule of law and democracy and emphasize the importance of reconciliation, peace and compromise.
As the European Union reorganizes in the wake of Brexit, the president further considers new challenges and the need for effective multilateralism, among the EU block and beyond, in order to address them.
