College Wide Symposium

The European Union: Challenges and Cooperation
November 5, 2009, 1:30 p.m.
Phelps Stokes
Sparked by Berea College’s international focus on Europe this year, the symposium will address the challenges and accomplishments of the European Union (E.U.). Does the E.U. offer a model for working towards the goals of peace, prosperity, and stability for the world? Does it serve as a mediator between global and local needs? Panelists Karen Mingst, Lockwood Chair Professor in the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce at the University of Kentucky, and John McCormick, Professor of Political Science and Director of Graduate Studies at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, will present examples from their research and experience to address the roles that regional organizations and public policy can play in fulfilling the challenge of thinking globally and acting locally. Cosponsored with the History Department and the Francis and Louise Hutchins Center for International Education (CIE).
