Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Oksenberg Conference Room, 3rd Floor Map

Sponsored by:
The Europe Center

Speaker: Alexander Stubb, Former Prime Minister, Finance Minister, and Foreign Minister of Finland (2008-2016)


If you thought that world politics is boring, think again. 2016 was potentially as important as 1945 and 1989. The end of WWII marked the beginning of our current global institutions and a bipolar world. The end of the Cold War kicked off an unprecedented era of liberal democracy, social market economics, and globalization. Last year arguably marked an end of that era, as demonstrated by Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. Was Brexit and the election of Donald Trump the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning? Come and find out. As a former Prime, Finance, and Foreign Minister of Finland, Alex will give you a practical answer with a theoretical twist and a blend of humour.
