EU Public Affairs
EU Public Affairs
Brexit, a massive refugee crisis, a new US Government, continued global military and humanitarian drama. And that‘s only the tip of the iceberg of problems and uncertainties awaiting us in the year to come. What about stock market volatility, nationalism flaming up in the EU, cybersecurity risks?
2017 will surely provide for a shift in the issues on the public affairs agenda and professionals working in this field will be hard pressed with navigating efficiently through such a volatile landscape. One thing is for sure - they are going to be more attuned to the political environment than ever before.
How is the EU going to cope with these severe challenges and what will this mean for PA professionals in terms of adapting to new rules and regulations, procedures and issues of political, economic and social interest? How are these developments going to change your collaboration with EU institutions and the public sector?
The 7th EU Public Affairs Conference will take a look at the relevant questions and developments in the field of advocacy in the EU and will look to solutions for the most pressing issues currently affecting the public affairs profession.

"How Brussels works" took me in two days from some superficial knowledge to more in depth insights of PA at the EU. Sincere thanks to professor Thorun and his team.
The EU Public Affairs Conference offered a good opportunity to learn and refresh knowledge acquired on the ground from big lobby global players. Highly recommended.
A timely and effective way to understand the new commission and to anticipate upcoming changes!
A very stimulating conference. The speakers provided highly relevant perspectives on recent developments in the EU institutions and presented practical PA tools to navigate and succeed in an arena, characterized by increasing complexity and importance.
