Regional Policy and the Lisbon Agenda - challenges and opportunities

LSE and LSESU Polish Society Public Lecture

Date: Thursday 3 February 2005
Time: 6:30pm
: Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
Speaker:  Danuta Hübner
Chair: Professor Lord Wallace

A driving ambition of the European Union is to foster new opportunities in the regions and cities of Europe, as the current economic and social disparities between member states weaken its overall dynamism.  How is the Union attempting to harness the joint efforts of member states, regions and citizens?  Can the opportunities presented by the Lisbon agenda be realised?  What challenges is the Union facing with regard to regional policy?

Since May 2004 Danuta Hübner has been a member of the European Commission, and assumed responsibility for regional policy and cohesion in November when the new Commission took office.  Previously the Polish minister for European affairs, and before then the head of office of the Committee for European Integration and secretary of state, she was instrumental in Polish accession to the European Union.
