Impressions from Leipzig Book Fair 2017
About the project
The “Europa21. Thinking tomorrow’s society” event series at the Leipzig Book Fair invites visitors to join international guests in reflecting upon and discussing the future of Europe. We want to encourage critical thinking and new ideas – free of political constraints and national self-interests that often enough tend to kill constructive debate about common challenges. The focus in these efforts is on a differentiated and (self-)critical assessment of current political issues, the general understanding of European societies, and historical developments of the European Community. This approach is key to establishing a culture of open dialog, but also to developing a shared vision for the continent. Multilingual journalist and author Mohamed Amjahid is the curator of the third and final edition of the event series at the 2018 Leipzig Book Fair.
