Lecture: 70th Birthday of the UN

26-10-2015 at 20:00 - 22:00

Free

Joining us this Monday is Prof. Drs. Herman Schaper, the Dutch top diplomat who held the position of Permanent Representative to the UN, Permanent Representative to the NATO and was Special Envoy of the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Lastly, he was a member of the House of Representatives and currently is a member of the Senate of the Dutch Parliament for D66. Having this much experience with international relations, he is the ideal speaker to talk with us about the UN.

The largest intergovernmental organization itself writes that this year’s anniversary is an opportunity to reflect, but also to emphasize where it needs to increase its efforts to meet future challenges. We will take this opportunity to look critically at both the history and the future of the UN.

This event, organized by the Introduction Committee, is open and free for everybody. After this intellectual part of the evening, we will have drinks!
