His Excellency Jorge Dezcallar de Mazarredo, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Spain to the United States

Europe is at a crossroads. It is confronted with the eurozone crisis, a faltering global economy, a rising China, and political upheaval in North Africa. At the same time, Spain is experiencing a ruptured housing bubble, record unemployment, tough austerity measures, and ongoing popular protests. How will Europe and Spain navigate these changing times, both at home and abroad? What are Spain’s dynamics within the European Union? Join The Chicago Council for a conversation with Ambassador Dezcallar de Mazarredo on the transformational developments in Spain, Europe, and the world.
