Can Europe run the 21st century?

Robert Cooper, director-general for external and politico-military affairs at the General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union and one of the EU's most senior officials, will give a public lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Thursday 6 October.

Responding to one analyst's controversial prediction that 'Europe will run the 21st century', he will asks whether Europe has the will and the means to do so. Or does the old concept of 'The West' remain our most potent force for a better world?

Robert Cooper is director-general for external and politico-military affairs at the General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union. He has published a number of essays and articles on international affairs and, most recently, a book of essays: The Breaking of Nations.

Roger Liddle will chair this event, which is part of the LSE European Series of lectures, organised by the European Institute at LSE.

Can Europe Run the 21st Century? is on Thursday 6 October at 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
