Help from the North: The Czech Dissent and Friends from Norway and Scandinavia

  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: January 31, 2023, 19:00 – 21:00

What was behind the strong wave of Swedish, Norwegian and Danish aid to the Czech dissent in the wake of the publication of Charter 77? Who launched it, how was it organized and how did it help democracy to return in the country? Conversely, how and who should we help today? Alongside Czechs who were there, this unique debate will feature Norwegian diplomat Øyvind Nordsletten, journalist Alf Skjeseth, Urban Westling from Sweden’s August 21 Committee, Morten Nielssen of the Danish organisation Dialog med Charta 77 and Frode Bakken from Norway’s Stottefondet for Charta 77. Adam Drda will chair the discussion.

Organised by Post Bellum in cooperation with the Václav Havel Library and the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway.
