At a time when European unity is being tested from both outside and within, and when signs of a deepening East-West split appear stronger than at any point since the 2004 enlargement, the 30-year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall provides a welcome opportunity to revisit the journey that brought us together in a Union spanning the entire European continent and discuss some of the challenges that face the EU and that no European country can face alone.

Bringing together speakers who lived through Europe’s great transition with representatives of those who will have to shape its future, we ask: when did it become apparent that the Cold War was ending and that the dream of a united Europe was finally within reach? What were the obstacles and opportunities on the road to the great enlargement of 2004? How has been our life together in the EU over the last 15 years? And how do we make sure that the achievements of a united Europe do not become another footnote in the often troubled history of our continent?

Confirmed keynote speakers:

  • German Ambassador to Denmark H E Detlev Rünger;
  • Former minister, longest serving member of the Danish Parliament Bertel Haarder;
  • Professor Emeritus, Dr. Phil. Per Øhrgaard; 
  • Associate Professor emeritus, Søren Riishøj; 
  • Editorial writer at Politiken Marcus Rubin;
  • Author of “Our Europe” Elena Maria Askløf

Moderator: Adam Holm

The event will be in English. 

In the fringes of the conference participants are invited to experience the National Museums up-coming special exhibition:

”Germany: Memories of a Nation”

The exhibition examines elements of German history from the past 600 years in the context of the fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago. From the Renaissance to reunification and beyond, the show uses objects to investigate the complexities of addressing a German history, which is full of both triumphs and tragedies.
It navigates through Germany’s many political changes and explores the profound influence that Germany’s history, culture and inventiveness have had across Europe – from the Holy Roman Empire through unification in the 1870s and the troubled 20th century to today’s economic powerhouse at the centre of Europe.
