IBS kicked-off the new semester with a prominent guest lecturer who talked about the work of the Council of the EU.
Mr. György Tatár was one of the guest speakers during Induction Week. He was speaking in front of third year students representing two programmes: Business Management and International Studies.
Mr. Tatár spent seven years in Brussels working at the Council of the European Union under the direct supervision of the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. He was the only Hungarian in a team dealing daily with the most important international issues and challenges facing the European Union and its member states.
In his talk he was explaining the day-to-day operation of managing the common foreign policy of the Community. He was referring to the difficulties of forming common positions and presented a lively picture of the sometimes-unsurmountable differences among national policies.
Mr. Tatár is presently the Chairman of the Foundation for the International Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities. While talking about this institution he offered internship opportunities for students from IBS.
