The ESADE Alumni Public Management Club is pleased to invite you to a dinner discussion with Juan Fernando López Aguilar,Chairman of the Parliamentary Commission for Public Administration, and a PSOE candidate for the European Parliament.
The European Parliament election to be held in June across all 27 European Union (EU) member countries will mark the beginning of the renewal of the European Commission. This process of renewal in two of Europe’s basic institutions will take place in parallel with changes in the EU’s structure.
One of the most important issues on the European political agenda in the coming months is the role that public administrations - both European and national - will play in this phase of European integration, against the backdrop of a deep economic crisis that has led to large-scale public intervention, on the one hand, and given rise to questions about the performance of certain public regulatory bodies, on the other.
In order to explore these issues, as well as any others that may arise, the ESADE Alumni Public Management Club is hosting a dinner discussion featuring Juan Fernando López Aguilar, a European Parliament candidate for the Spanish Socialist Party. Thanks to his academic background and his experience as Spanish Minister of Justice from 2004 to 2007, during which time he participated actively in conferences of European ministers, Mr. López Aguilar is intimately familiar with European politics.
