MMF alumni gathered at the Brewer’s House, situated in the historic heart of Brussels, to celebrate GMF’s 40th, MMF’s 30th, and the Brussels Office’s 10th anniversaries, on Thursday, November 15.

This event featured John Harris, co-founder and editor-in-chief of Politico, and was moderated by Ian Lesser, executive director of GMF’s Transatlantic Center.

Fresh on the heels of the U.S. presidential and congressional elections, John Harris shared his inside account of the campaigns, defining moments that influenced the American electorate, as well as his opinion on what Europe can expect from the United States congress and presidential administration in 2013 and beyond.

The audience, made up of European alumni spanning more than 22 years of the MMF program, created a lively question and answer session, with many of their questions relating to personal experiences in the United States. From the influence of the gun lobby, to the future of gay marriage, to President Obama’s particular strengths and weaknesses as compared to past presidents, this crowd posed several rounds of thoughtful questions whose answers prompted further discussion long past the official Q&A session ended.

 GMF wishes to thank John Harris for his highly insightful comments and all of the MMF alumni who attended the event. We look forward to seeing you again!
