European Union Studies in Brussels: a three stage rocket
After the successful visit to Brussels of last year, staff of the MA International Relations specialisation European Union Studies, the Communications&Marketing team of Humanities and colleagues from the Law faculty joined forces to organise another great visit to Brussels this February.
Panel discussion on Brexit and drinks for alumni
"Will Brexit change the EU foreign policy?" During the Leiden alumni event in the Holland House in Brussels on 13 February, our well known lecturer of European Union Studies Dr. Maxine David will be moderator for the panel discussion with this very current topic. Panel speakers are Dr. Matthew Broad (Lecturer in the History of International Relations), Dr. Armin Cuyvers, Associate Professor of European Law and Dr. Joris Larik, Assistant Professor of Comparative, EU and International Law at Leiden University College The Hague. After the panel, there’s plenty of time to meet fellow alumni at the drinks reception.
Visiting the European Council
What’s it like to work for the European Council? Twenty-two Humanities students registered for the visit to the EU on Friday 14 February. They will meet History alumna Alexandra Ekkelenkamp and Classics alumna Liesbeth Versluis, both working in Brussels for respectively the European Council and the Permanent Representation. Thus, the students will gain important insights about the working environment in Brussels from an insider point of view.
Meetings with prospective students
At the Politico EU Studies Fair the MA International Relations will be present as well. On Friday 14 February, Dr. Matthew Broad and Dr. Maxine David will have several one-to-one-meetings with prospective students, and on Saturday 15 February, the Humanities recruitment team and Dr. David will be present at the Leiden University booth at the Politico EU Studies fair.
