Speech on Enlightenment Values

Tomorrow in Brussels I am giving a speech on the importance of enlightenment values. I believe this is the most important issue of our time – and of all times.

 

Other speakers include member of the European Parliament Syed Kamall, also a Cobden Centre contributor, Professor Paul Cliteur from the University of Leyden, and member of the European Parliament Angelika Mlinar.

 

I will post a summary following the event.
