With the new project, there will also be a change of leadership for the Dahrendorf Forum at LSE. We are delighted to welcome Professor Iain Begg as the new Academic Co-director, taking over from Robert Falkner.

Having been a specialist adviser to a House of Lords Committee of which Lord Dahrendorf was a prominent member, Iain is delighted to be involved in the forum which bears his name. He looks forward to a fruitful collaboration with Hertie, as the academic partner in the Forum, and the Mercator Stiftung.
