W.J. Van den Bremen Lecture | Job Cohen

W.J. Van den Bremen Lecture | Job Cohen

--- Lecture will be in Dutch ---

Since 2004 the Lecture Committee of Ibn Battuta organizes the W.J. van den Bremen Lecture. We make sure that this lecture is prestigious to honor Willem Jan van den Bremen (1931-2003). Prof. van den Bremen was dean of our Faculty and professor in economic and social geography. After he passed away in 2003, Ibn Battuta has decided to name a yearly lecture after him, to be thankful to his work at the faculty as well as his contributions in the field of geography.

This year, we've found no one less than Job Cohen willing to speak for Ibn Battuta! He will talk about administrative sides of planning, from his experience as mayor of Amsterdam and front man of the PVDA. The exact program will be announced later on, but you can mark the 23rd of May RED in your agenda. 

The lecture will start at 4 o’clock PM, but the doors will be open hat 3.40 PM. We expect a high attendance so, make sure you are on time. If you’re a member of Ibn Battuta, you can assure a seat via our website (
