The Autumn Talks is an annual event organised by the German-Russian Exchange (DRA) and the Heinrich Böll Foundation in the tradition of the German-Russian Autumn Talks that have been organised annually since 1995 in close cooperation with the Protestant Academy in Berlin. The aim of this conference is to support the dialogue and exchange on societal, political and cultural developments in both Russia and Germany. In its new format, the Autumn Talks' geographical focus has been broadened including the European context. This year, the main topic was “More Enlightenment - More Democracy? Possibilities and Limitations of Civic Education in Central and Eastern Europe”.
