Alexander Graf Lambsdorff, Deputy Chairman of the German Liberal Democrats in the European Parliament, has served as a Member of the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee, Foreign Affairs Committee, and on the Parliamentary Delegations for the United States and Japan. Lambsdorff has been selected as a highly significant European Union Parliamentarian by German political magazine Focus and serves as one of Europe's most effective commentators on the pressing issues of European politics today.
In addition to his frequent commentary in the German media on the E.U. market place and Europe's role in foreign affairs, Lambsdorff has been involved with a number of pivotal European issues including the possibility of Turkish accession into the EU, a German seat on the UN Security Council, and the controversial Services Directive of the European Chemical Directive (Reach), where he is also the draftsman for the Liberal Group in the European Parliament.
This New America event featured Lambsdorff's presentation on Europe's evolving stakes in the Middle East, followed by a question and answer session moderated by Steve Clemons. Video is available at right, while an MP3 audio recording can be downloaded below.
