"Turkey after elections: autocracy or democracy?"
The Justice and Development Party (AK party) is set to lead Turkey alone once again after a five-month break, easily regaining its parliamentary majority in what Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called a victory for democracy.
The victory of Turkey's AKP gave the AKP 317 seats in the 550 seat parliament, effectively reversing its losses in the June. Meanwhile, the center-left CHP maintained its share of roughly 25 percent, but the AKP was able to take nearly half the seats from the ultra-nationalist MHP. The pro-Kurdish HDP lost 21 seats, 18 of which went to the AKP. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's party was able to secure a majority on a message that coalition governments would lead to economic and political instability.
This time we'll talk about actual situation in Visegrad Group and possibilities future for this formation.
The Visegrad Group, also called V4 is an alliance of four Central European states (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) for the purposes of furthering their European integration as well as advancing their military, economic and energy cooperation with one another.
V4 group was founded in the Hungarian castle town of Visegrád at 1991, and all members joined the European Union on 1 May 2004.
We are going to talk about that and many other issues related to the topic on Thursday at Kawiarnia Konfitura. Be there at 19:00 and take your friends!
Russia in Syria: opportunity or danger?
For more than a year lasts the intervention of NATO Air Forces in Syria. Last month also Russian planes started officially an operation against Islamic State. However, it is claimed that Russian air strikes do not harm ISIS but anti-government forces supported by USA. Is Syria to change into battlefield of two global powers? Is the Russian attendance in Syria a opportunity or danger? We are going to answer these questions during our discussion club.
We are curious about your opinion on those issues and hope, that you will join us on Thursday, 19:30 in the Bookhouse Cafe!The discussion will be held in English.
Discussion Club: In the middle of the latest Middle East issues - Israel's domestic and international politics.
Israel as a little and controversial country for some, recently has to struggle not only with the perennial Israeli-Palestinian conflict which has escalated lately but also has to struggle to enforce its position in the international arena.
Does the ruling right-wing party Likud (with PM Benjamin Netanjahu) cope with it?
With who are they playing in the international sphere concerning the latest agreement with Iran and situation in Syria?
Is the two-state solution a good idea for Israel?
We would like to invite you to our next FMD Discussion Club on Thursday, October, 29th at the Kawiarnia Konfitura.
We begin at 19:00.
