Churchill Lectures

Anlässlich des fünfzigsten Jahrestages der Rede Sir Winston Churchills in Zürich fand im Jahre 1996 das erste Churchill-Symposium statt. Seither organisiert das EIZ in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Schweizerischen Institut für Auslandforschung, British Swiss Chamber of Commerce (BSCC) und mit Unterstützung der Swiss Reinsurance Company Ltd eine jährliche Konferenz.

Hochrangige Gäste aus der internationalen Politik und Wirtschaft treffen sich dort, um aktuelle Themen der europäischen Integration zu diskutieren.
