Network Meeting - Objective and Work TCC and Book Launch Todd Huizinga

Nieuwspoort Den Haag
Wednesday, June 8, 2016 - 18:30 to 21:30


Europe is an hot item today. Is the post-Christian EU-project crumbling, or does it prefigure a future system of global governance and an ever looser commitment to democratic sovereignty? Is the EU as a supranational organization on a collision course, in principle, with the US as a strong nation state? In session 2 of this event Todd Huizinga will present his book: ‘The New Totalitarian Temptation – Global Governance and the Crisis of Democracy in Europe’. Todd is a former American diplomat, seasoned with personal and professional European experience, and co-founder of TCC.

SGP Member of Parliament and spokesman on Europe Roelof Bisschop will receive the first copy in the Netherlands at the end of session 1 (which will be in Dutch). This session starts with a presentation of objectives and activities of TCC toward the development of a transatlantic network of Christians and likeminded people involved in public life, seeking to influence public policy at the level of governments and international organizations from a Christian perspective, with special focus on issues such as life, family and freedom. You are welcome and we look forward to your input.
