Upcoming talks in Belgium and Germany about Democracy and Political Ignorance (Ilya Somin)

March 6, 2014

Next week, I will be giving several talks in Belgium and Germany about my book Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter. I am doing a separate post on this because I think European-based readers might not normally check a post about speaking engagements, since they might understandably assume that all such talks are likely to be in the US.

March 10, 8-10 PM, Union of Flemish Liberal Students, Leuven, Belgium (with commentary by Prof. Boudewijn Bouckaert).

March 11, 12:30-2:30 PM, University of Antwerp, Belgium, research group on Law and Government.

March 12, 6:15-8 PM, University of Hamburg, Institute of Law and Economics, Hamburg, Germany.

March 15, 1:30-2:15 PM, European Students for Liberty annual conference, Humboldt University Unter den Linden 6, Berlin, Germany (this talk is probably limited to participants in the ESFL conference).

The talks in Belgium and Germany will all be in English, though I may say a few words in French at the events in Belgium, and at the ESFL conference, and perhaps take some questions in that language.

Ilya Somin is Professor of Law at George Mason University. His research focuses on constitutional law, property law, and popular political participation. He is the author of "The Grasping Hand: Kelo v. City of New London and the Limits of Eminent Domain" and "Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter."
