For two days, numerous experts in international politics, academics, journalists, students and European political representatives, as well as members of some of the main conservative think tanks in Hungary, the United Kingdom, Spain and Israel, analysed and discussed the importance of the past and future of conservatism in the concept of nationhood, first in the formation of nations and then in the resurgence of national traditions as essential elements in the purpose of uniting peoples and helping them flourish.
Prominent speakers included Mr Janez Jansa, Prime Minister of Slovenia; Mr Balázs Orbán, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office of Hungary; Mr John O’Sullivan, President of the Danube Institute; Mr Francesco Giubilei, President of Fondazione Tatarella and of the cultural movement Nazione Futura; Mr Grégor Puppinck, Director of the European Centre for Law and Justice; Mr Alvino-Mario Fantini, Director of The European Conservative; and Mr Hermann Tertsch, Spanish MEP for VOX and Vice-President of the Conservatives and Reformists group (ECR).
The National Conservatism Conference is a start-up project of the Edmund Burke Foundation, a public affairs organisation founded in January 2019 with the aim of strengthening the principles of national conservatism in the West and in other democratic countries. Its promoters perceive the rich tradition of national conservative thought as an intellectually serious alternative to the excesses of liberalism, as well as a clear opposition to race-based political theories.
We are hosting the third edition of New Direction's Think Tank Central with the conference entitled Advancing Freedom.
Our student of the II edition of the Expert Degree in Leadership and Civic Engagement has participated on behalf of CEFAS in the last edition of this meeting of young leaders.
