The Forum Committee is very excited to announce the Night of International Relations 2021! On the 15th of February at 19:00, we have invited numerous speakers that will address a variety of exciting and interesting topics during three rounds of lectures. There will also be small breaks, as we understand that we all need to recharge in between lectures so that we can pay attention to all three equally. The speakers will be announced in the coming weeks on our social media, so keep an eye out for that! Following this, participants will receive an email where they can give their preference for speakers, so keep an eye out on your inbox too!

Speakers that have already been announced (for more info, check out the discussion in the Facebook Event):

  • Daaf Borren - Why the world’s image of  contemporary Africa is vastly outdated.
  • Damodar Mauzo - Freedom of Speech under attack: Literature and Liberal voices and the rise of the right-wing in India. 
  • Stijn Deklerck - Spotlight : The situation of the Uighurs in China. 
  • Aram Ziai - The Sustainable Development Goals : Old wine in New Bottles?
  • Fanny Gauttier: “Forests matter – Making it a top priority for the EU and the international community”
  • Ane Alencar - "Induced Wildfires in the Amazon, the Threat to Climate Change"
  • Ruben Brekelmans - "Strategic Autonomy for Europe, what political decisions are needed?"
  • Aurélie Salvaire - "Towards an inclusive and feminist world!"

As has been the case throughout this year for many other events, this event too will take place online. Participants will receive more info on this once they have joined.
