It is with great honour that UGlobe/UCIS will organise this year’s Professor Bronisław Geremek lecture on 14 February 2017. We are very pleased to announce that this year’s speakers Caroline de Gruyter and Geert Mak will also do a UGlobe/UCIS Masterclass specifically for our students.

She is European Affairs correspondent for the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad, a regular contributor to Carnegie Europe and a member of the European Council on Foreign Relations.

She wrote several books on Europe, the most recent one published last year, and has been awarded with the Anne Vondeling Prize (2013), the Heldring Prize (2015) and the Prix du Mérite Européen (2016).
Geert Mak is a journalist and non-fiction author. He started his career as a teacher in constitutional and immigration law at the University of Utrecht. Mak later got more involved in journalism and media, working for newspapers, such as De Groene Amsterdammer and NRC Handelsblad and for the VPRO broadcasting. Since 1992 Mak has dedicated himself to the writing of books. He was awarded the Leipziger Buchpreis fur Europäische Verständigung for his critically acclaimed book In Europe in 2008 and won the Prix du Mérite Européen in 2016. He also led a series of three forums on the future of Europe in 2007 with Bronisław Geremek being one of his participants.
UGlobe/UCIS Masterclasses are led by prominent figures who will share their personal knowledge and insights into a relevant theme. They are meant to be less formal, with Chatham House Rules applying.
