The Embassy of the Czech Republic and the Embassy of the Slovak Republic, in collaboration with Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service, will hold the panel discussion Velvet Revolution @ 30: A Legacy to Uphold with former United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright as the keynote speaker at Georgetown University on November 12, 2019, at 9:00 am.
Ambassador of the Czech Republic Hynek Kmoníček and Ambassador of the Slovak Republic Ivan Korčok will open the discussions, marking the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution which brought freedom and democracy back to Czechoslovakia in 1989. Reflecting on the past and the future, two distinguished panels will include those who courageously led the way during the demonstrations and those who continue to lead the society into the years to come. Join us in commemorating and reflecting on this turning point in history.
