Karel De Gucht elected President of IES

The Institute for European Studies is delighted to announce that Karel De Gucht has been elected by the IES Board to serve as its new President. An eminent figure in the Belgian and European political arenas, De Gucht is most widely known for his former role as EU Commissioner for Trade.

Karel De Gucht takes over from Prof. Dr. Em. Bart De Schutter and praises the work that has been carried out over the past fourteen years, saying “I was involved in setting up the Institute and I am pleased to see that it has been very successful so far. There has never been a more crucial time to get to grips with the many questions facing the EU today. Whether it concerns economic governance, the migration question, pressing environmental challenges or the contemporary security environment, Europe needs well-trained and critically minded individuals to help shape the policies of the future.”
