Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition, to deliver Anna Lindh Lecture in Lund

*
Föreläsning
Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition, has been named the 14th annual Anna Lindh speaker. On March 18, she will give a speech titled “Democracy and Power in a Brave New World: Economy, Technology and Human Rights”

In 2017, TIME listed Vestager among the world’s top 100 most influential people, and Foreign Policy placed her on the prestigious Global Thinkers’ list. Since being named EU Commissioner for Competition, she has taken action against Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google and others.

The Anna Lindh Lecture pays homage to the Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs, who was assassinated in 2003. Since then, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute, Lund University, in cooperation with the Anna Lindh Memorial Fund and Lund University’s Association of Foreign Affairs, have hosted the annual event.

Vestager previously served as Minister for Economic Affairs and the Interior (2011-14) and Minister for Education (1998-2001) in Denmark, and as President of the ECOFIN Council during the Danish EU Presidency (2012). She was a political leader of the Danish Social Liberal Party (2007-14), and has worked for the Danish Ministry of Finance (1993-95). Ms. Vestager holds an MSc in Economics (University of Copenhagen).
