XVI. Verleihung der Arenbergpreise für Geschichte, Brüssel - VERSCHOBEN

Zurück zur Übersicht

Because we got the confirmation that a general strike will go ahead in Brusssels on November 9th, we have decided to postpone the prize award ceremony of the “Duke of Arenberg History Prizes”.

Three major reasons :

  • the likeliness of disturbances and possibly a violent demonstration on the ring just in front of the Palace of Academies
  • the uncertainty of travelling for all participants and the difficulty to make sure that all speakers will be able to attend
  • the likely impossibility for the local public to reach the Palace of Academies

We are very sorry because we looked at a great event with all of you involved and we are now trying to organise the award ceremony again, probably on a Wednesday in March 2023. As soon as we know more, we will get back to you.
