Ciros & Basis: Guest Lecture by Alex Krijger
28/11/2018 @ 16:00 - 17:30
How can we innovate our democracy?
How can the relationship between the US and the Netherlands be strengthened?
These fundamental questions stand at the centre of the lecture-tour organized by Krijger & Partners together with the American Embassy and the Dutch Youth Atlantic Treaty Association. Alex Krijger, Founder and Managing Partner at Krijger & Partners, a firm specialized in Government Affairs and Geopolitical Risk Consultancy, and author of “JFK: idealist zonder illusies“, will deliver the guest lecture at Leiden University, in which he will focus on John F. Kennedy’s ideas on politics, democracy and leadership.
After the lecture, students can sign up (in groups or individually) and hand in original ideas that can answer the central questions addressed during the lecture. The jury under the lead of ProDemos director Eddy Habben will pick the top 3 ideas and invite the young thinkers to present their ideas at the American Embassy in the beginning of 2019.
Location: Wijnhaven, Lecture hall 2.02.
