Lecture Amy Verdun

The past decade has seen multiple crises and challenges : the financial and European debt crisis, the migration crisis, the Brexit crisis and even, one could argue, the challenge posed by right-wing populism. In light of these challenges what can we say about trust in Europe? This lecture examines these issues and offers some insights into what we might lie ahead for the future of European governance. Students can ask questions after the lectures.

Practical information

The Beach Lecture is hosted by Beachclub Indigo in Scheveningen. Students are welcome at 3.30pm, at 4pm the first lecture will start. After the lecture a beach BBQ is organised. This costs 5 euro (one drink included). 

Note: the lecture will be in English.

The beach lectures are a collaboration between the universities of applied science in The Hague, Leiden University and the city of The Hague.
