Guest Lecture "Cycle vs Structure. An Outlook for the Eurozone Economy for 2020 and Beyond" by Mr. Carsten Brzeski on 19 February 2020

 

On Wednesday 19 February 2020, the LLM-Programmes are pleased to invite the LLM-students to the next guest lecture of the current academic year.
 

Speaker:
Mr. Carsten Brzeski, Chief Economist at ING-DiBa 
 

Title of the lecture: "Cycle vs Structure. An Outlook for the Eurozone Economy for 2020 and Beyond"

The Eurozone has escaped a recession in 2019. In the new year it is the same global topics, like Brexit or trade, which will shape the course of the Eurozone economy. With disruption in key industries, an ageing population and increasingly complex politics, the Eurozone is facing many structural challenges. Not only in 2020 but in the years to come.

Carsten Brzeski will first discuss the short-term outlook for the Eurozone economy and then look into his “crystal ball” to find broader themes for the 2020s, both for the Eurozone economy and the Eurozone politics.

Guest Lecture "If NATO did not exist, would we have to invent it?" by Ambassador Pascal Heyman on 11 December 2019

 

On Wednesday 11 December 2019, the LLM-Programmes are pleased to invite everyone to the second guest lecture of the current academic year.
 
 

Speaker:
Ambassador Pascal Heyman (Permanent Representative of Belgium to NATO)

Title of the lecture: "If NATO did not exist, would we have to invent it?"

Since its inception in 1949 the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is widely regarded as the world’s most successful military alliance. Yet, as a product of the Cold War period, some might argue that its role is achieved, and that it is no longer well suited to address current realities and today’s changing security challenges. Moreover, with a general trend towards re-nationalization of security and defense interests, ongoing efforts to strengthen European external security and defense, and an increasingly complex multipolar world encompassing a variety of international actors, NATO will have to continue its adaptation process, including by promoting a renewed sense of common political purpose. What have been the recipes for success? Are there impediments on the way? Is the Transatlantic relationship as relevant and essential today as it was during the Cold War? Can or should Europe take over responsibility for the security and defense of its own continent? These are some of the issues that will be addressed during the guest lecture, followed by debate with the audience.

Roberto Balzaretti will touch upon in his keynote address.
