For some time now it is has been our tradition to invite the Consul General of the Presidency State to deliver a “State of the European Union Address” during the appropriate semester. The purpose of this event is to brief students and faculty from the Claremont Colleges, and members of the Los Angeles consular community, on the priorities of the country holding the Presidency of the European Union Council, and to provide an assessment of the current situation. These events are free and open to the public.
Dr. Kovanda will discuss recent changes in the architecture of EU’s foreign service and reflect on the contributions it makes. In addition, he will touch on the EU-US relationship.
