My new book Next Europe is now officially launched. Of course this comes with a modest campaign to create attention for the book.
The presentation took place on September 22 at the Press Club in Brussels. More than 100 people attended the event. First I gave a short summary (link to Prezi) of Next Europe to the audience, followed by the handover to Constantijn van Oranje-Nassau, chief of cabinet of Commissioner Kroes. A panel of experts – Shada Islam of Friends of Europe, Claude Grunitzky of TRUE, and Marietje Schaake of the European Parliament – gave their first responses.
Shada Islam: ‘This is an insightful study of Europe by a young, thoughtful EU Watcher.’
Dutch public radio 1 made a report on the launch event, you can listen to it here.
On October 14, Next Europe will be presented in Amsterdam, followed by a debate with Paul Scheffer and Adriaan Schout. Programme and registration on the site of Pakhuis de Zwijger
