At a time when globalisation is under attack, Pascal Lamy exposes why Peter Sutherland was, and still is, right in promoting a rules
based open international system.
Pascal Lamy is former General Director of the World Trade Organization.
Minouche Shafik is Director of the London School of Economics and Political Science. Prior to this she was Deputy Governor of the Bank of England.
The Peter Sutherland Memorial Lecture is hosted by the London School of Economics and Political Science and University College Dublin supported by LSE’s European Institute and the Institute of Global Affairs.
Peter Sutherland was Chair of LSE Court and Council between 2008-2015. He was awarded an honorary doctorate at LSE in 2015 in recognition of his exceptional contribution to EU and world affairs. Peter left a permanent significant legacy to the School through his establishment of the Sutherland Chair in European institutions held in the European Institute. After he stepped down as Chair he also retained his connection with LSE by becoming Professor in Practice in the Institute of Global Affairs and became the leading figure in the Institute’s Global Migration Initiative.
The LSE European Institute (@LSEEI) is a centre for research and graduate teaching on the processes of integration and fragmentation within Europe. In the most recent national Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) the Institute was ranked first for research in its sector.
The Institute of Global Affairs (@LSEIGA) aims to maximise the impact of LSE's leading expertise across the social sciences by shaping inclusive and locally-rooted responses to the most important and pressing global challenges.
