Views on Europe: Slovakia’s New Challenge


Cardiff Met's Ambassadorial Lecture Series, which provides alternative perspectives on international topics affecting its local and wider communities, is proud to host Slovakia's Ambassador to the UK, His Excellency Lubomir Rehak.

Ambassador Rehak's work has included overseas postings to Moscow, Lisbon, Minsk, Brussels and Astana, and he has twice been Political Director of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs. He has been Ambassador to the Court of St. James since 2015 and is the winner of the 'Diplomat of the Year from Europe 2017' award.  

On the eve of the 25th anniversary of Slovak independence and the centenary of the creation of Czecho-Slovakia, Ambassador Rehak will outline Slovakia's fascinating journey from a post-communist country to a fully integrated member of European and the wider international community.

He will provide an assessment on the future of Europe by a committed EU and NATO member state, following new challenges now facing Europe, including euroscepticism and brexit. As the cornerstone of Slovakia's success, it is ready to not just defend the European project, but to contribute to its further development as it adjusts to current global trends.
