The Brussels Effect Book Release Event | 6 March 2020

26 February 2020

Will the EU Rule the World?

“Yes, it will.” In her new book, Professor Anu Bradford explains that multinational companies are already using EU standards as global standards and that the EU is significantly shaping policies worldwide in areas such as data privacy, environmental protection, antitrust, and online hate speech. The EU’s role as the world’s regulator is likely to outlive its gradual economic decline, extending the EU’s influence long into the future.

We would like to invite you to the book release event of Anu Bradford’s “The Brussels Effect”, organised by Nordic West Office and Hannes Snellman on Friday 6 March 2020. The event takes place at Hannes Snellman’s office (Eteläesplanadi 20, Helsinki) from 8.30 am to 10.00 am.

9.00 am | Presentation & Discussion
