During her diplomatic career, Plassnik has represented her country in Bern and Paris and currently teaches at several French higher education institutions – she is one of the leading experts on European and French politics. In our collection, we showed her the correspondence between Otto von Habsburg and Wolfgang Schüssel, which provides interesting insights into the period of the enlargement of the European Union and Hungary’s membership. Ursula Plassnik then had a discussion with our curator György Károlyi – who was Hungarian Ambassador to Paris until the summer of 2021 – on the situation in France and the European Union, and the consequences of the Russian-Ukrainian war. The discussion at the National University of Public Service was moderated by foreign policy journalist Bálint Ablonczy.
