Štefan Füle: The legacy of Václav Havel goes beyond European borders
In former President Václav Havel we have lost a statesman of truly European significance, who made a major contribution to the re-unification of Europe. At the same time, he always made sure that the enlarged and even more integrated Europe fully reflected the interests of all its citizens. In both his work and his views, he showed how civil society can contribute to the transformation of the political system. His message in this respect goes well beyond the borders of Europe, and serves as an inspiration in the fight against totalitarian regimes across the globe.
