    Symposion

    Democracy in times of crisis
    A Schloss Elmau Symposium

    Democracy and freedom are increasingly threatened in Germany by their enemies both at home and abroad. In the upcoming state elections in Thuringia, Saxony, and Brandenburg, a party classified as securely right-wing extremist by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution could, despite the 'Never again,' potentially come back into power, possibly with the support of Russia. At the Schloss Elmau Symposium 'Democracy in Times of Crisis,' prominent constitutional lawyers, political scientists, historians, economists, and politicians are discussing necessary measures to strengthen democracy and defend freedom against its adversaries.

    Scientific Director: Prof. Peter Michael Huber, Munich

    Opening lecture: Thursday, 5 December 2024, 17:00
    Stephan Harbarth, president of the German Federal Constitutional Court
