Spokespersons have their say

| Spoken language: Nederlands

During the negotiations on the European corona relief fund, Mark Rutte was viewed as a reasonable manager in his own country, but portrayed as a ruthless miser in Italy. Who determines the coverage and perception of European decisions? How do the relationships between media, politicians and European institutions work? And how does this affect European cooperation? We will discuss above questions with:


  • Ria Cats, EU correspondent for Het Financieele Dagblad
  • Bart Rijs, former spokesperson for the Ministry of Economic Affairs
  • Ton van Lierop, spokesperson at Eurojust
  • Moderator: Annette van Soest, journalist and maker of our podcast Café Europa
