The lecture will take place at the Central European University’s Auditorium A (1051 Budapest, Nádor utca 15) on Monday, November 26, from 5.30 to 7 p.m. The talk forms part of the CEU’s “Irish Speakers Series,” with welcoming remarks to be delivered by Michael Ignatieff, CEU’s president and rector.

Bruton will reflect on the current state of Europe and the process of European political and economic integration 100 years after the conclusion of what was once called “the war to end all wars.” He will also reflect on the current state of transatlantic relations and the challenges posed by phenomena such as Brexit and populism.
