TALKING EUROPE

Politicians, activists and researchers debate the issues facing the EU and a 'guest of the week' offers their insight in a long-format interview that gets to the heart of the matter. Saturday at 12.10 pm.

Latest update : 2014-04-14

Guy Verhofstadt, candidate for Head of the European Commission, Liberals and Democrats

In the run-up to the European elections, we bring you a series of interviews with the top candidates for the EU elections. Guy Verhofstadt has been nominated by the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats to campaign for his party across Europe.

Guy Verhofstadt is the former Prime Minister of Belgium. He is also a federalist, and has been calling for the creation of a United States of Europe, warning EU member states they must agree to deepen political and economic integration or risk being marginalised in a globalised world.

In partnership with HEC Paris Executive Education and the HEC Europe Institute.

Discover HEC's MOOC "Understanding-Europe".

Programme produced by Mary Colombel
