Guys, I am now through week 2. In the last lecture of week 2, Alberto introduces lobbying, as well as the idea of citizen lobbying. This might have some importance for us as a community and a company.
I would like to propose a small group discussion, to be had after @anique.yael and I come back from Istanbul, and so during the week beginning December 3rd.
If you have kept up with the course, we will have finished by then (I am running somewhat behind, perhaps half a week). But even if we have not watched all the videos, it will make kit more fun to check in I think. Thoughts? @noemi @johncoate
UPDATE – I made a mistake: the course is actually 6 weeks long, not 4. So, the week starting Dec 3rd is going to be week 5 – the course will not be finished. Still, I stand by my suggestion of a check-in! Happy to organize and host it myself, just let me know which days you CAN'T make. It would be probably at 17.00 Brussels time to accommodate John.
UPDATE 2 – The course gets way more interesting towards the end of week 2, where Alberto starts to give examples of actual EU interventions, directives, decisions of the European Court of Justice etc. I am now halfway through week 3 since I had a bit of extra time this morning.
