On february 10 (Wednesday) Politician and diplomat Jon Baldvin Hannibalsson will give a lecture "Solidarity of Small Nations: Utopian Dream or Practical Politics?" and will discuss the geopolitical significance of the restoration of independence of the Baltic States. Language of the lecture is English.
Lecture will take place 11:30 a.m., at the Institute of Internationla Relations and Political Science, room 402.

In his speech Mr. Hannibalsson will deal with many questions about the policy of the West towards the restoration of independence of the Baltic States. The headline above is a quote from a distinguished foreign minister of a NATO-member country from the early 90s.

Among those questions is why President Bush urged the Ukrainians (and by implication the Baltic nations), as late as August 1991, to keep the Soviet Union together at all cost? Were Western leaders ready to sacrifice the Baltic countries for perceived gains in dealing with the USSR on ending the Cold War?

Among other questions he answers, is why Iceland disagreed with the major leaders of the time, President Bush , Chancellor Kohl, President Mitterand and the Iron Lady, Mrs. Thatcher? What is the historical heritage of Mr. Gorbachev? Why is he loved in the West, but detested at home? Can small nations change the world – if they act together – when the major powers fail?

February 11 (Thursday) 15:00, at the University church of St. Johns'. The celebratory meeting of the University Senate convened to award degree of Doctor Causa to Jon Baldvin Hannibalsson.
