The European Series of public lectures of the European Institute is one of Europe's leading platforms for senior politicians, officials and academics from across the EU. The lectures are followed by lively questions from LSE students and staff, as well as from representatives from a broad spectrum of sectors including government, business, NGOs and the media. Speakers in the 2006/07 public lecture series, entitled ' The Future of Europe' and sponsored by FT Business, will include the President of Italy, the Prime Ministers of Finland (as EU Presidency), Greece and Estonia, Peter Sutherland (Chairman of BP, former WTO Director-General and former European Commissioner),and Professor Timothy Garton Ash of Oxford University.
