Frans Timmermans speaks at the World Leaders Forum

September 24, 2018

We were delighted to welcome First Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans for a discussion on current global and European challenges, including migration, populism, and threats to democracy, the media, and the rule of law. Recently described by the Financial Times as "Europe's champion idealist", Frans Timmermans is on the frontline of EU policy on managing migration, defending the judiciary, fighting terrorism, and harnessing globalization in the face of threats to the multilateral world order.

Welcome remarks were made by Anya Schiffrin, Director of the Technology, Media, and Communications specialization at the School of International and Public Affairs

The discussion was moderated by Adam Tooze, Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of History and Director of the European Institute.

The event was co-sponsored by  the Technology, Media and Communications Specialization at SIPA.
