Former EU President Donald TUSK

2019-12-11

Donald Tusk, former Solidarnosc activist, former Prime Minister of Poland, completed his term as President of the European Council last month. I attach the text of his keynote speech at the Opening of the 2019/2020 academic year at the College of Europe.

Donald Tusk is a true and forceful European. In his speech he made it quite clear and he substantially contributed to keeping the unity in times of crises. Obviously he is most unhappy about BREXIT. He also takes issue with French President Macron, whose new strategy towards Russia looks very much like Charles de |Gaulle's old dreams of French predominance. In a way it is  sad how French and British political leaders continue their nostalgic dreams. They should learn from Donald Tusk; his sense of politcal reality is based on experience, politcal courage and vision. Thank you !!

Neither Justice nor Order

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

This fifth and final volume offers a critical assessment of the state of the law of nations. In the twenty first century the world needs true global law anchored in the dignity of the human person rather than weak international law built on the interests of major sovereign states.

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The peaceful collapse of the Soviet totalitarian, communist system has been a watershed of historic proportions in Europe and the world. In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.
