Norwich University will host Ambassador of the Principality of Liechtenstein to the US Claudia Fritsche on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 12 p.m. in the Krietzberg Library to discuss the financial situation in Europe from the Liechtenstein perspective.

This event is sponsored by Norwich University’s School of Graduate and Continuing Studies (SGCS) and the Vermont Council on World Affairs and is free and open to the public.

"Ambassador Frische's visit is exceedingly timely, and gives us an opportunity to see the European financial crisis from within that community,” said SGCS Associate Dean Dr. Harold Kearsley. “The goal is to gain a better understanding of what this crisis means to the US and to Vermonters.”
