Tuesday, 2 March 2021 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Lecture Theatre, Old Government House, Princes Street, University of Auckland

SPEAKER: HE Stefan Krawielicki, Ambassador of the Federal Government of Germany

Ambassador Krawielicki joined the Federal Foreign Office of Germany in 1988. During his diplomatic career he has been assigned to positions in Berlin and in Bonn within Germany, and to positions in Embassies in Europe, the Middle East, and the Pacific.

Prior to diplomacy, he had worked in legal offices in Germany and France.

Like Ulysses in the poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, he may claim:

Much have I seen and known; cities of men

And manners, climates, councils, governments,

...I am a part of all that I have met;

Nearing the end of his career, Ambassador Krawielicki will share with us some of the encounters and lessons from his diplomatic life.
