World Class: a lecture by Erik de Jong
The World Class program is a student program which was set up ten years ago by the municipality of The Hague with the aim of strengthening relations between students and the profile of the city as the international city of peace and justice. Meanwhile, the focus of the program is very broad and it introduces students to a wide range of social topics. By doing this, the program provides students access to special lectures and master classes in numerous fields! For example, speakers who have hosted a lecture in the past years are former Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon, King Abdullah II of Jordan, former president of South-Africa Willem de Klerk and former American minister of foreign affairs Madeleine Albright.
This year the main speaker will be Erik de Jong. Erik has more than 25 years of experience in the field of information security, both in the government and on the commercial side. In this lecture he will elaborate why cyber security is such an important topic for The Hague, which hosts more than 480 international organizations including the OPCW, International Criminal Court (ICC) and the International Court of Justice.
The students participating in the World Class programma are enrolled in one of the educational institutions in The Hague (Haagse Hogeschool, International Institute of Social studies, Universiteit Leiden, InHolland and TU Delft). This means students have many different fields of studies and interests.
