Europe in the World

Human rights in a world of great power competition
27 Nov 2019 15:00 - 17:45

- Fully booked-

This public event is co-organised with the Municipality of The Hague.

The world has entered a new era of great power competition. But what is the status of human rights? Do Europe and the US still share a common approach to the world? And what about China?

Brookings, Top Think Tank in the World, goes the Hague 

We are delighted to welcome Constanze Stelzenmüller as our keynote speaker. She is an expert on German, European, and transatlantic foreign and security policy and strategy. She is a senior fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe at Brookings. Brookings has been named "Think Tank of the Year" and "Top Think Tank in the World" every year since 2008 (Global Go To Think Tank Index).

We will start with a short introduction by Rem Korteweg (Clingendael Institute), followed by the keynote of Constanze Stelzenmüller (Brookings) and a panel discussion with Maaike Okano-Heijmans (Clingendael Institute) and Willem Post (Clingendael Institute).

Following the panel discussion there will be lots of time for Q&A's.
