Reimagining Our Future


Located between Berlin, Prague, and Warsaw, and saturated with the history and memory of these three distinct cultures, Wrocław (formerly Breslau), is a beautiful and booming city that uniquely conveys both the challenges and the promise of a united Europe. Drawing on Wrocław’s culture of the borderland, TCDS’s network of distinguished collaborators and alumni, and The New School’s reputation stemming from our long-term engagement in the region, the Democracy & Diversity Institute offers a program of critical inquiry on some of the most pressing problems of our time.

The program will be complemented by study tours of Lower Silesia’s political, cultural, and historical landmarks as well as evening gatherings featuring intellectuals and artists from the region. This year the Institute will conclude with a special two-day Democracy Seminar symposium attended by senior intellectuals from the region.

Our focus this year is on the need — and the opportunities – for Reimagining Our Future.
