UCIS Lecture: Lieutenant General Leo Beulen

On 11 May the new Commander of the Army, Lieutenant General Leo Beulen, will give a lecture for UCIS. Last March, Lieutenant General Beulen officially took over from Mart de Kruif, who had until then been Commander of the Army.

In his lecture Beulen will elaborate on international military cooperation and humanitarian interventions. He draws from many personal experiences, as Beulen has served in both Bosnia-Herzegovina and Afghanistan, and was, as Director of Operations at the Defence Staff, involved in military missions worldwide. Beulen also was the deputy commander of the German-Dutch Army Corps in Münster.
