Vienna: Kreisky Forum / U.S. Embassy
The Bruno Kreisky Forum for International Dialogue and the U.S. Embassy, keynote. The Forum was founded in 1991 in commemoration of the late Austrian Chancellor Bruno Kreisky. A group of Kreisky’s friends and colleagues created the Forum to continue Kreisky’s work for Human Rights, the Middle Eastern Peace Process, Europe after the Cold War, and other issues close to him. This year’s lecture series can be found here.
