My 80th Birthday

On September 13, 2014, I had the good fortune to be able to celebrate my 80th birthday in good health and with family, friends and colleagues at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin which, over the past ten years, I helped to establish. It was a wonderful day (see the schedule of the day's events), and I was delighted that so many companions of various phases of my life accepted the invitation to celebrate with me. To all of them - and to those who could not join us but sent their good wishes - I extend my heartfelt thanks. The speeches that were given on this occasion by a stellar cast of speakers were well worth hearing and reading; as they all are - with the exception of Sue Grant Lewis' - in German, the texts have been made available on my German website (click above for access).

A selection of pictures of the occasion can be viewed here
