The Nigel Evans Lecture on European Union-United States Relations
Europe, united we stand. Challenges described from the inside.
Presented by Achim Ladwig
April 2nd, 2015- 5:30p.m.–Chase Center
Since its foundation in the 1950s, the European Union has developed relations with the rest of the world through a range of means. Over the years it has progressively pooled the sovereignty of its Member States with a view to giving “Europe” a larger voice in international politics. The Lisbon Treaty of 2009 created the position of a High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, placed in charge of an European External Action Service (EEAS), and also a Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP).
Achieving a common stance among 28 Member States is not always an easy task. At the same time, the EU’s Foreign Policy can draw on the extensive expertise and assets of its Member States who have a long tradition in diplomacy. Beyond respecting treaty obligations, EU diplomacy requires a set of skills, whether at the political or the working level, to bring this together under ever increasing time constraints, shrinking resources – and in an environment which is never short of major global challenges.
Achim Ladwig is the European Union Fellow at The Fletcher School. Prior to this, he was posted for the European Commission both in Brussels and outside Europe. He dealt extensively with the EU’s relation with countries in the Horn of Africa, and served at EU Embassies in Sudan, Iraq, and Sierra Leone and was responsible for political affairs, as well as development cooperation. In 2009-2010, he was the EU’s Chargé d’affaires in Baghdad. During his assignments abroad, he worked closely with a number of U.S. government institutions, including the DoS, DoD, and USAID.
Please join us for his observations of the EU’s Foreign Policy from the inside.
Since 2013, the Institute for Business in the Global Context (IBGC) has hosted dynamic annual fora on the intersection of inclusive growth and business. The first annual Fletcher Inclusion Forum, entitled “Extreme Inclusion: Dignity, Development and Financial Services,” was followed by “The Inclusive City.” Both events sought to explore one aspect of how the private, public, and social sectors can partner to create more inclusive ecosystems. The Fletcher Inclusion Forum series has proved to be successful, consistently drawing hundreds of key stakeholders and practitioners for meaningful knowledge sharing, discourse, and ideation.
“Inclusion, Inc.” will draw upon IBGC’s ongoing research in Sustainable and Inclusive Business Activities (SIBA) focusing on key barriers and common issues to inclusive business at scale in emerging and developed markets. “Inclusion, Inc.” will explore the role of corporations in supporting more inclusive and sustainable business models. Key topics for discussion within this theme will include the language of SIBA, measurement, and the role of catalytic individuals vs. mandates within corporations.
“Inclusion, Inc.” will bring together scholars, representatives from government, industry, and NGOs and students to engage in dialogue, exchange ideas, and problem-solve.

A Tribute to John Denver with Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon Band Hailed as one of the nation's most exciting tribute bands, the award-winning Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon present a tribute to the music and legacy of John Denver in a special concert event! With similarities between Collins' and John's voices, Collins brings to the stage the unmistakable enthusiasm that was a hallmark of a John Denver concert. Together, with the consummate musicians of Kevin Delmolino on bass, Paul Swanton on lead guitar, Mark Nelson on percussion, Alexander Mitchell on fiddle/mandolin, and Bill Powell on keyboards, Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon have been playing to much acclaim and delighting audiences with their wit, warmth and musical performance. Performing John Denver's famous hits such as Rocky Mountain High, Take Me Home, Country Roads, Annie's Song, and many more, Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon are committed to keeping the music and message of John Denver alive. As one reviewer of their East Coast shows wrote, "the trick is developing a unique show and style that represents the artist while brushing their music with original style....Chris Collins and Boulder Canyon does just that."
YOU'RE INVITED TO A PURSUIT GATHERING IN APRIL!
We’re building community and making work a little more enjoyable: April’s gathering theme is: Work Day!
Our community group will be gathering together to respond to client e-mails, edit photos, update financials, schedule blog posts, and cross things off our to-do lists. Dessert, coffee & tea will be available.
Thank you to our sweet sister Amy for offering to host in her home! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pursuit Community (formerly Pursuit 31) was founded by Karen Stott, and is based on Proverbs 31 in the Bible. We are a Christian community of creative entrepreneurs - more specifically photographers, bloggers / writers, shop owners, calligraphers, and graphic designers - dedicated to cultivating the art of community and building the Kingdom of God as He uses us in our families, neighborhoods, and the world. Our deep desire is for women to have a local connection to Pursuit Community. Community Groups are a place to come out of the shadows of isolation, and find fellowship & encouragement in real life relationships with like-minded creative entrepreneurs. We long to see these community groups be a source of inspiration, support and growth in women’s lives not only as entrepreneurs, but in their relationships with the Lord, families, and friends.
This is the Pursuit Community Group for Boston, MA and the surrounding areas led by Jenny Lightman.
