On 15 October 2014, the Natolin (Warsaw) campus of the College of Europe hosted a special ambassadorial panel discussion entitled: "Enhancing bilateral and multilateral cooperation in the light of the presidency trio of the Council of the EU". The current presidency trio is comprised of the Italian Presidency (Jul-Dec 2014), the following Latvian Presidency (Jan-Jun 2015) and finally the Luxembourgish Presidency (Jul-Dec 2015). This panel discussion was the last event organized in the framework of the preparatory stage before the first semester study trip to the Baltic States.

          

Chair of the panel was Professor Dr Marek CICHOCKI, Director of the Natolin European Centre. The invited speakers were H.E. Mr Alessandro DE PEDYS, Ambassador of the Italian Republic to Poland; H.E. Mr Ilgvars KĻAVA, Ambassador of the Republic of Latvia to Poland; and H.E. Mr Georges FABER, Ambassador of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to Poland and Latvia.

         

The Ambassadors engaged in a trialogue and answered to students' questions. The debate was held according to the Chatham House Rule system. The panel discussion was followed by a standing dinner at the Natolin Restaurant.
