Anne Burrill, a visiting European Union Fellow, will be featured at a pair of lectures hosted by the Brigham Young University David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies Wednesday, Jan. 18, at noon and 4 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.
Her first lecture is titled “The European Union at a Crossroads.” Her second lecture will be given with BYU assistant professor of entrepreneurship and strategy Nathan Furr, and the title of the lecture is “Cowboys and Politicians: Will the U.S. or the EU Save the Global Environment and Economy?”
