Global Governance & Diplomacy Public Speaker Series

The Global Governance & Diplomacy Public Speaker Series brings diplomatic practitioners and academic scholars for a two-hour conversation with students and fellows of the MSc in Global Governance and Diplomacy. It is designed to allow GGD students and fellows to interact with experienced professionals and to discuss new perspectives on current diplomatic events and global governance challenges.

In order to facilitate an open and constructive conversation, the public speaker series talks follow the Chatham House Rule (participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed). Lectures last about 45-60 minutes (followed by 30-45 minutes of Q&A) and are followed by a small reception. Seminars are usually attended by 25-30 people.

The series is convened by Professor Corneliu Bjola
