World Language with an Accent – Art Deco in Central Europe

"As a global phenomenon, Art Deco is principally known for representativeness. With the advent of Art Deco in the 1930s glass, chrome, mirror, mahogany, and marble were no more the privilege of a certain elite: they became available for the middle class. In this sense, Art Deco is a symbol of a society with growing equality. The abstract character of Art Deco, paired with decorativeness, creates a bridge between Historicism and Modernism, traditions and progression."

We Stared at the Radio with Open Mouths – The Dutch Reaction to 4 November 1956

"In no other land did reaction to the brutal Soviet intervention in Hungary match the visceral cri de coeur that emanated from the Netherlands in the hours and days that followed. No other foreign people so sprang back from the wound as if it had been thrust into their own side. Deeply moved, heart-sick and indignant, the Dutch witnessed the distant tragedy, and, naturally, the way in which they learned of it helped to shape their reaction. For these were not only days of outrage, but also of rare solidarity and unity."

Conservatism, Populism and Conviction Politics

"That is merely one development, however, in the politics of the advanced democracies of the West, which are almost all in an extraordinary degree of movement, confusion, even chaos. As the Greek philosopher said: All is flux. Consider merely a few random examples of dramatic political change across the globe."

New Challenges Facing Democracy and the Rule of Law

"... the idea of rule of law in democracy has been filled with an ideologically informed content, and the organs of so-called participatory democracy and even oligarchic powers increasingly misappropriate the right to define its elements, thereby influencing political decision-making, public administration and the courts. Perhaps the most essential question we face today is whether politics and governments can shore up enough strength to defend and preserve their freedom of political action and the original substance of classic constitutional concepts, on the community level as well as within the nation state."

Budapest Declaration

International Consultation on Christian Persecution

"Call on the governments and international organisations of the world to seek long term solutions aimed at ending the persecution of Christians and other religious communities to ensure that the exercise of all human rights, including the free exercise of religion according to Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is respected. Call for urgent reconstruction of schools and other means of infrastructure to make it possible for Christians and other persecuted religious minorities to stay or return to the land of their ancestors."

Speech at the International Consultation on Christian Persecution

"Today it is a fact that Christianity is the world’s most persecuted religion. It is a fact that 215 million Christians in 108 countries around the world are suffering some form of persecution. It is a fact that four out of every five people oppressed due to their religion are Christians. It is a fact that in Iraq in 2015 a Christian was killed every five minutes because of their religious belief. It is a fact that we see little coverage of these events in the international press, and it is also a fact that one needs a magnifying glass to find political statements condemning the persecution of Christians."
