“A European Fight for Freedom” by Paul Tang
23-03-2017 at 20:00 - 21:30
Increasing instability around the world remind us of the fact how important freedom really is. The US president Franklin Delano Roosevelt formulated 4 freedoms which he thought were of the highest importance to defend: Freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom of want and freedom of fear. In this lecture we will talk about these freedoms from a European perspective and see what the European Parliament’s role is in securing these freedoms. Paul Tang, a member of the European Parliament for the PvdA will shed his light on the importance of freedom in a European context and what exactly his role to secure that freedom with the EU itself.
Paul Tang has been both member of the Dutch Parliament from 2007 to 2010 and has been a member of the European Parliament from 2014. In the European Parliament he is member of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats”
