CES: A Public Address by Edi Rama, Prime Minister of Albania

6:00pm to 7:30pm

Location: 

JFK Jr. Forum, Harvard Kennedy School

Edi Rama has many faces: an artist, a writer, a sportsman, a politician.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for European Studies and the Center for International Development.
