The European Club of the French-speaking Press and B2 invites you to a "talk" with Pierre Vimont, Friday June 2, at 12:30 p.m., at the excellent Press Club Brussels Europe, around the publication of our work on the CSDP, co-written by Nicolas Gros-Verheyde and André Dumoulin. This will be an opportunity to talk about the current and future challenges of the Europe of defense, its strengths and its difficulties.

It is also an opportunity to listen to a distinguished, experienced diplomat. We no longer present Pierre Vimont. He was chief of staff to several ministers, permanent representative to the EU, French ambassador to Washington, and finally the first secretary general of the European External Action Service, the European diplomatic service created in 2011. It wasn't an easy task! He will tell you. Today he continues to reflect on European developments at the think tank Carnegie Europe.

You will be able to discover our work there and take it away at the “member” price. Come in large numbers. Register here or on the press club website here.

Please note: Friday, June 2, 2017, 12:30 p.m.
Place: Press Club Brussels Europe, 95, rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels
(a stone's throw from the Schuman roundabout)

Please note that B2 will be in Strasbourg, at the Press Club, on June 14, at 8 a.m., and in Lille on June 30, at 29 p.m., at the Ateliers de la citadelle, to present our work.
