Jean-Claude Trichet to give Mandeville Lecture 2012

On Wednesday 6 June 2012, Jean-Claude Trichet, former president of the European Central Bank, will be giving the 18th Mandeville Lecture, entitled: 'Towards a New Economic European Governance'. Prior to the lecture, there will be a Masterclass for top students and an expert meeting for bankers and economists (on an invitation-only basis).

About the Mandeville Lecture

The Mandeville Lecture, named after the Rotterdam-born philosopher and doctor Bernard Mandeville (1670-1733), is a joint initiative of Erasmus University Rotterdam, Rotterdam's business community (Club Rotterdam) and Erasmus Trustfonds. The first lecture was given in 1988.

The Mandeville Lecture is given by individuals who have outstanding social achievements to their name and is the social equivalent of an honorary degree awarded by Erasmus University Rotterdam for academic achievement.

Those who have previously given the lecture include Joop van den Ende, Jeroen van der Veer, Bernard Bot, Lilian Gonçalves, Ruud Lubbers and Frits Bolkestein. In 1998 the lecture was given by Wim Duisenberg on the eve of the introduction of the euro.

About Jean-Claude Trichet

Jean-Claude Trichet (1942) was appointed as president of Banque de France, the French Central Bank, in 1993. Ten years later, in 2003, he succeeded Wim Duisenberg as president of the ECB.
