Reality Czech Ft. Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic (2003-2013)

The dissolution of Czechoslovakia offers a rare example of how radical social and political change can be brought about both peacefully and legally. What lessons from the Czechoslovak experience can be applied to the resolution of numerous conflicts besetting the EU, from the refugee crisis to the Ukrainian conflict? Oksana is joined by Vaclav Klaus, the former President of the Czech Republic, to discuss these issues.

Recorded at the 13th session of the World Public Forum - "Dialogue of Civilisations", Rhodes.
