You are cordially invited to a talk to be given by Harald Schmautz entitled:

“Europe at the end of the first quarter of the century”



Harald is the former Chairman of Germany’s pre-eminent monarchist organisation Tradition und Leben and is a respected journalist who is well placed to talk on contemporary Europe. 

As the title of Harald’s address suggests, Europe is now facing steep problems which the speaker’s talk will analyse.  These challenges encompass the threat of a nuclear conflict arising from the Russo-Ukrainian War, the ensuing economic dislocation caused by rising gas prices and the consequent rise of populist parties in Europe. 

Harald, as a monarchist, will also pay tribute to Elizabeth II and cite the challenges which Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II currently faces.  The speaker will also talk about the potential danger of separatism in Europe as well as border tensions between Greece and Turkey.  The latter nation’s designs on predominately Kurdish northern Iraq and Ankara’s support for Azerbaijan against Armenia will also be discussed.
