We have long since demolished the high wall that had separated us from the democratic Europe, but at the same time we are still tolerant of new walls, just as bad as the fallen ones, that are gradually and inconspicuously rising around us and among us.
Václav Havel, New Year's Address, Prague, January 1, 1999
One half of this year’s theme - The Other Europe - refers back to the epoch when Europe was divided into East and West. The first part of the conference - The Other Europe in the 1980s - refers to a six-part series produced by the British Channel Four television in 1987–1988 about the situation in the communist-dominated countries of Central Europe, based on interviews with the leading opposition figures of the era.
