On Tuesday the 17th of May, a lecture was organized in honor of this academic year's Patron(ne) the Promotion Éliane Vogel-Polsky. The topic of the event was 'Equal Pay in the EU: from fundamental right to gender equality in practice?' Professor Agnès HUBERT opened the conference as president of the Gender Five Plus think thank. Rector Federica MOGHERINI gave the welcoming speech and academic assistant Andréa DELESTRADE (POL) moderated the discussion with the students.
Professor Dr. Sophie JACQUOT intervened on the legacy of Éliane Vogel-Polsky as an actor of change and focussed her speech on the current discussion on Equal Pay, a topic of the upmost importance in today's debate on gender equality. The concluding remarks were made by Professor HUBERT and Olivier COSTA, Director of Studies of the European Political and Governance Studies Department.
This event at our Bruges campus was supported by the POL department and the Gender Five Plus think tank.
