The founding presidents of Lithuania, Moldavia and Slovenia will explain their countries’ independence processes in the conference “Architects of the new Europe”, held in Barcelona on 7 and 8 October.


European borders have experienced continuous changes throughout history. One of the most stable times was the second half of the 20th century, until the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union and the entire Eastern European bloc. One by one, new republics with full democratic legitimacy appeared on the map of the old continent. The Baltic States commenced a movement which continued in other parts of the former USSR and in other states such as Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia.

How do you conduct an independence process? How is a state built the day after? The Centre of Contemporany Issues (CETC) has organized the conference “Architects of the new Europe”, which will take place in Barcelona on 7 and 8 October. On these days, the direct protagonists of the independence of three Eastern European countries will explain to us how these events unfolded: the former president of Slovenia, Milan Kučan, the former president of Lithuania, Vytautas Landsbergis, and the former president of Moldavia, Mircea Snegur.
