Wednesday afternoons have become a set point in the agenda of the School of Transnational Governance with lively discussions on transnational policy issues at Palazzo Buontalenti. 

After a successful first round in the first semester, the second  season of STG Talks opens on Wednesday 22 March with a lecture by Nobel Laureate and STG Adjunct Professor Bengt Holmström. Together with Georgios Papakonstantinou, STG Chair in International Political Economy, fellows Petra Krylova and James Drummond, master's student Farhan Abdul Majiid and Teaching Associate Adrian Bradley, Prof. Holmström will explore the question of whether "economics is still relevant today".

Other issues covered in the series include disaster risk reduction, corruption and anti-corruption policies, geopolitics, as well as higher education institutions and diplomacy. The variety of topics is also reflected in the panel line-ups, featuring a colorful mix of fellows, faculty members and students. For the first time, a fully master’s student-led STG talk will focus on the European Strategic Autonomy. There will also be a talk led by Policy Fellows from previous cohorts as alumni are an integral part of the STG Community.

The STG Talks also opens up to other activities happening at the School, like the lecture on "Financing clean energy in Africa: Breaking barriers and looking into the future", which is part of the EUI Climate Week, held in conjunction with the 2023 State of the Union Conference at the beginning of May.

To make participation as easy as possible, the events will take place in alternating hybrid, online and in-presence formats. In-presence events at Palazzo Buontalenti and the Badia Fiesolana will involve the whole EUI community in engaging debates.

Don’t miss out and mark the STG Talks in your agenda!
