2020- 03 March: CLEER Presidency Lecture: The Finnish EU Council Presidency's Experience in the External Relations Field
Finland held the Presidency of the Council of the EU from July to December 2019. The Ambassador of Finland to the Netherlands, H.E. Ms Päivi Kaukoranta will speak at our upcoming CLEER presidency lecture at the Asser Institute about Finland's experience during the presidency term.
The rotating presidency of the Council of the EU offers coordinating and representation opportunities for the incumbent Member State, the possibility to create ‘ownership’ of EU-related issues at home, gain political influence by leadership, and create a positive image to the outside world.

15:00: Lecture by H.E. Ms Päivi Kaukoranta, Ambassador of Finland to the Netherlands
15:30: Respondent speaker Dr Luca Pantaleo Senior Lecturer in International and EU Law at The Hague University of Applied Sciences
The event will be chaired by Dr Eva Kassoti, Senior Researcher in International and EU Law and Academic Coordinator of CLEER.
