Opening and public lecture: Professor Michael Ignatieff, Central European University, 29th Mai 2022 at 17:00 at Festsaal Meerscheinschlössl, Mozartgasse 3 on the topic "Legitimacy in a World Without Rules":
How do we think about the legitimate use of political authority, both within but between states, in a world discovering that the so-called “rules based international order” has collapsed? How do we think about rebuilding the legitimacy of international institutions from the ruins left behind by the Russian invasion of Ukraine? How does Europe re-think democratic legitimacy on a continent where authoritarian populists win elections?
