LSE European Series

Date: Wednesday 8 March 2006
Time: 1.30pm
: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Lord Ashdown
Chair: Professor Kevin Featherstone

The European Union is actively engaged in the reconstruction of the Western Balkans. But after years of bitter conflict, the region remains fragile. Is EU membership a realistic prospect?

Lord Ashdown was leader of the Liberal Democrats from 1988 until 1999 and served as the international community's high representative in Bosnia Herzegovina from 2002-06.

This series is hosted by the European Institute at LSE and supported by LSE Annual Fund.

The next event in the series takes place on Thursday 9 March - Charlie McCreevy, a member of the European Commission and responsible for internal markets and services, will give a lecture on The Development of the European Capital Market.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
