Perspectives on Europe

The Perspectives on Europe series is the European Institute's principal public lecture programme. The Perspectives on Europe series is firmly established as one of Europe's leading platforms for discussion of the identity of Europe, the policies and institutions of the European Union and its member states, and wider issues of politics, economics and society affecting the European continent as a whole.

Since its inception, the series has hosted a diversity of public and academic luminaries. There has been an outstanding cast list of high-level speakers from politics, public administration, academia and the media. This has included presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers, finance ministers, EU commissioners and heads of European agencies and the EU institutions, along with distinguished scholars and influential commentators.
