A talk by László Andor (Hertie School/former EU Commissioner for Employment and Social Affairs).
László Andor is joining the EMPA students for an informal discussion about his career in public administration on the national and the EU level. He will share his insights about public service in international organisations in London and Brussels and lessons to be learnt from working in different capacities on economic governance as well as social policy.
László Andor served as EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion from 2010-2014. Between 2005 and 2010, he was a member of the Board of Directors at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, representing Hungary, the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, and Croatia. Previous to this, he was adviser for the Prime Minister's Office in Hungary (2003-2005). Andor holds a degree in economic sciences from Karl Marx (now Corvinus) University as well as an MA in development economics from the University of Manchester. He earned his Ph.D. at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. At the Hertie School, Andor is Senior Fellow with a focus on European imbalances and social policy.
Drinks and snacks will be served and in the spirit of a fireside chat you will have plenty of time for questions and discussion.
