The Past, Present and Future of Europe
What is so European about Europe and European integration? Why does the notion of a united Europe at the same time appeal to and terrify so many people? In this brief philosophical lecture, Willem Noë will discuss these issues, referring to the history of European integration ideas from Roman Empire to modern-day Europe, the European paradox of unity versus diversity, and how several of these often very contradictory ideas with various roots deeply shaped if not traumatized all of Europe, hence shaping modern integration and European economic development right down to our present.

About the Speaker:
Willem Noë, European Commission, Directorate-General Enlargement
After graduating in Macroeconomics and International Economic Relations from the University of Amsterdam, Mr. Willem Noë started at the Ministry of Economic Affairs in the Netherlands as a research economist. He then transferred to the European Commission, where he has ever since been working in various Directorate-Generals (DGs), including DG External Relations, Economic & Financial Affairs, Communication (EU Representation in Berlin) as well as Enlargement. Throughout his career, he has dealt with two main themes: globalization and EU Enlargement. Mr. Noë has also taught graduate courses on the economics & political economy of EU enlargement as an EU Fellow at Pittsburgh University (USA) and regularly gives presentations on European integration at universities and for other audiences – in and outside the EU. His main fields of interests are globalization and the dynamics of EU Enlargement as well as the historical, economic, political, and cultural roots of Europe.

What is the Jean Monnet Chair?
In 2014, the EU's Executive Agency for Education, Audiovisual and Culture awarded Professor Dr. Harald Sander of the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law a three-year Jean Monnet Chair on “Europe in the Global Economy”. The Chair focuses on education and research on Europe’s economy and actively seeks to establish sustainable research networks both within Europe and between Europe and other continents. Its aim is to promote and disseminate in-depth knowledge of European economic affairs.
