Speaker
Anton Pelinka - Professor of Political Science and Nationalism Studies, Central European University Budapest


The dawn of a new US administration could be seen as the beginning of a golden era in the transatlantic relations. But is a new president enough to overcome different interests and especially Europe's structural inability to speak with one voice?

Anton Pelinka is professor of Political Science and Nationalism Studies at Central European University Budapest. Previously, he served as Dean of the School of Political Science and Sociology (2004-2006), and as Chair Bernheim d' Etudes sur la Paix at Université Libre, Brussels (2002). Professor Pelinka was the Austrian Representative to the EU Commission on Racism and Xenophobia in 1994 and 1997. Professor Pelinka has taught Political Science at University of Salzburg, University of Essen, Pedagogical College of Berlin (West), and University of Innsbruck. He has been a visiting professor at Nehru University, University of New Orleans, and the University of Michigan, and a fellow at Harvard University and Collegium Budapest. Professor Pelinka served as the Austrian Chair at Stanford University in 1997.
