Sever Voinescu: Paul’s Dream. An Intuition about the Future of Europe 16 December 2018
About Sever Voinescu Sever Voinescu was born in 1969 in Ploiesti. In 1992 he graduated from the Faculty of Law of the Bucharest University. The same year, he became a trainee attorney at the Bar of his hometown, and since 1994 he has become a full-time lawyer at the Bucharest Bar. Between 1994 and 1996, he was assistant professor at the Law Department of the Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest. Between 1998 and 2000, he was Secretary General to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. From March 2000 to December 2003, he was General Consul of Romania in Chicago. From 2004 to 2008, he was Coordinator of the Foreign Policy Programme at the Institute for Public Policy. Between 2008 and 2012, he was deputy in the Romanian Parliament and for the duration of this mandate, he led the Parliament Delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. Since January 1st, 2016, he is editor-in-chief of the Cultural Weekly Newspaper Dilemma, and, since the same year, he makes the weekly show "Europa Christiana" on the television channel Trinitas. Since 1993, he has published over 3,000 articles, commentaries and essays in cultural publications or in daily newspapers such as the Old Dilemma / Dilemma, 22, Cultural Observatory, Cotidianul, Evenimentul Zilei, as well as specialized journals in the fields of law, philosophy and political sciences . He has lectured on various subjects specific to international relations in public or private institutions or universities in the United States, Great Britain, Belgium, France and Romania. He contributed to the content of several volumes, wrote prefaces, and enjoyed the few occasions when he was invited to speak at the opening of exhibitions. He especially boasts a book dedicated to opera, entitled Canta che ti passa - talks with Virginia Zeani. Currently, he is working on completing a doctoral thesis in law, about property. He has no Facebook page and is therefore happier than others. "Contrary to the general belief that it is impossible to find a place and a precise time for her birth, I believe that Europe, the one we know, was born on a certain day and in a particular place when a man of the great faith pursued a dream and met other people willing to listen to new things. Almost 2000 years later, someone else had an extraordinary insight into how Europe's history is flowing. Putting the two moments side by side, we will get something like a mysterious code whereby we shall explore our present, the everyday. And we'll try to guess our past and discover the future. I said well...". Sever Voinescu   Translated by Simona Nichiteanu
