Cecilia Malmström: "Building Bridges Not Walls"

Brännpunkt Europa invites you to an interesting lunch seminar with the EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström on the topic of “Building Bridges Not Walls: European Trade Policy in an era of increased protectionism”.

When: 12:15-1 PM, March the 6th
Where: Stora hörsalen, entréplan, Renströmsgatan 6
(Faculty of Arts, Humanisten)

Trade policy is a heavily contested issue and protectionist movements have become visible in many places. In a more polarized world, where political actors move towards protectionism, European trade policy is at a crossroads. EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström will give her take on how the EU will meet this new challenge and why building trade walls is not the answer.  

Doctor Cecilia Malmström PhD has been the European Commissioner for Trade since 2014, having previously served as the European Commissioner for Home Affairs between 2010 and 2014. Prior to her appointment as Commissioner, she served as the Swedish minister for EU affairs, and as a member of the European Parliament. In 1998, Malmström received her PhD in Political Science from the University of Gothenburg.

NOTE: Free lunch baguettes for the 30 first attendants.

We hope to see you at the event,
