    11 april: Panel Discussion, Dutch Labor Party NYC
    April 9th, 2008, 8:44am | Reply with quote | Modify


    I N V I T A T I O N

    The Dutch Labor Party New York presents

    On Friday April 11th, at 7.30pm

    Its latest publication

    American Affairs IV: Accountability

    (Original title: Amerikaanse Toestanden IV: Accountability)

    The US and elections are inextricably intertwined. Not only the President, but also the Mayor, the Judge and the School Board are often based on a direct electorate mandate.
    What results do these elections deliver? Do they really lead to elected officials who are closer to the citizen? Do they increase the popular trust in these officials? Does it bring about a higher accountability of officials? And, last but not least, what useful lessons can the Netherlands draw from all this?

    These and many more questions are discussed in a new publication "American Affairs" ("Amerikaanse Toestanden"). By means of several interviews with U.S. elected officials and members of the American civil society the theme "accountability"
    is thoroughly analyzed.

    A first edition will be offered to the Dutch Consul General, Mr. Gajus Scheltema.

    Under auspices of NOVA-correspondent Willem Lust
    conclusions regarding the theme "accountability" will be further discussed in a panel. Panel members include Ian Buruma and Boris Dittrich. The Panel discussion will be conducted in English.

    Live music before and after the debate!


    RSVP before 8 April at newyork@pvda.nl

    Location:
    The Netherland Club
    3 West 51st Street
    New York, NY 10019, USA
