    This program is presented by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).

    Following legislative requirements businesses need to be able to identify and register customers, suppliers, and other business partners. Laws on sanctions, export controls, anti-corruption, anti-money laundering, anti-terrorism, all have implications for (inter)national business. Many businesses see themselves confronted with a growing complexity due to requirements and the number of identifier systems.

    Where to find relevant and reliable information, and what if information is unavailable? How to organize the know-your-customer process efficiently? Those - and more - questions will be answered during this half-day seminar, by representatives of the regulator, business and the bank.

    This seminar provides insight in how to manage these KYC related compliance risks and the complexity of regulatory requirements, by providing:

    • An overview of the latest requirements, following rules and regulations;
    • Insight in the possible effects of developments in the field of identity management, in particular the G20-initiative Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation which has the task to take the lead in developing recommendations for a global LEI and a supporting governance structure;
    • Experiences of businesses and bank on organize KYC/customer screening processes efficiently.


    • Ms. Juliette van Doorn, Head of Department Expert Centre Integrity Strategy, De Nederlandsche Bank
    • Mr. Geert Teugels, Sr. Director, Global Program Manager for Corporate Risk Management- and Legal Compliance Programs, Philips

    During one afternoon you will be taken on a short journey through the cyber threat and opportunity landscape. A few years ago phrases like 302 redirect, geolocation fingerprinting and RIG exploit kit did not even exist. Now, they do and in the future they will carry an even greater meaning; in the near future they will mirror nothing but significance and sense. What can you do to secure yourself, the people around you, and the organization you work for; keeping in mind that it is often human error which opens the door for cyber-attacks.

    That’s where IN2 Cybersecurity comes into play. The session on June 1 will bring you stories and real-life examples that will inspire you to take action and help to raise awareness of potential cyber risks.

    This event is organised by Deloitte.

    Want To Sail The Seven Seas In An Historic Dutch Masted Tall Ship?

    Well... not the whole seven seas exactly, but at least a small part of them. To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, this year you can join them and return loaded with many stories of your adventurous voyage and plans for new adventures to come!

    During the summer over 40 Tall Ships will be sailing Canadian waters to honour the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.

    We’ve got history in abundance

    DutchTallShips.com own 3 tall ships. Two will be sailing to Canada; the bark ‘Europa’ built in 1911 and ‘Oosterschelde’ built in 1917 are unique in their kind. There are very few truly historic ships left in the world and with lots of hard work and passion we keep these last survivors under sail. We are very proud to be sailing worldwide and looking forward to visit Canada. ‘Oosterschelde’ will even be celebrating her centenary in Canada!

    We hope to welcome many Dutch Canadians on board to sail along for one or more legs. Sailing experience is not required. The professional crew of the ship is more than willing to explain all about navigation, sail handling, square rig sailing and much more. All ages and nationalities can


    The three-masted topsail schooner ‘Oosterschelde’ (1917) is the largest restored Dutch sailing ship and is a monument for Dutch shipbuilding and maritime navigation under sail. ‘Oosterschelde’ is internationally known for her many impressive journeys since her restoration in 1992, including two circumnavigations. The ship is regularly in use as a floating embassy for  companies in ports all over the world.


    The bark ‘Europa’ (1911) travels the oceans all over the world and developed a reputation since 1994 as a ship that ‘really sails’. Tall Ship lovers, even without experience, can steer, hoist the sails and navigate the ship. The 56 metres long ship was built in Hamburg and rebuilt and refurbished in Amsterdam. Since then, the Bark 'Europa' is wandering the oceans, participating in Tall
    Ships Races and visits the Antarctic continent every year.
    Please find below the sailing schedule with dates and rates. If you are interested in joining one of the ships or learning more about the voyages, please contact Elvira Beetstra at info@dutchtallships.com.

    From booksellers and rock artists to diplomats and the President of the United States, many people have echoed the sentiment that Canada has something important to offer to the world. The 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 represents an excellent occasion to consider and highlight current social, cultural and political developments and critically explore the ways in which Canada defines itself and its place in the world. Can Canada be a blueprint for the world? To what extent can Canadian policies and solutions be transferred to other continents and cultures? Does the world indeed need more Canada?

    For more information, visit the conference website.

    Call For Papers

    With the election of Justin Trudeau, Canada seeks to move in different political, social and economic directions from the ones initiated and implemented by former Prime Minister Steven Harper. At the same time, the legacy of Harper and his predecessors, including Pierre Trudeau, needs to be (re)negotiated and adapted to the realities of the 21st century.

    For this conference, we call for proposals that seek to critically examine Trudeau’s emphasis on change and the promise of revision. Specifically, we seek papers that explore continuities and discontinuities in Canada’s approaches to the following subset of themes: immigration, justice and security; issues of indigeneity; the theory and practice of Canadian multiculturalism and the ideal of the “inclusive society;” Canada in global perspective.

    Proposals may include but are not limited to the following topics:

    • New (transcultural) perspectives on Canadian national identity: still “our famous problem” (Northrop Frye)? Identity and issues of language, immigration and integration.
    • Canadian multiculturalism: the legacy of Pierre Trudeau, (dis)continuities in Justin Trudeau’s present-day policies, theory and practice.
    • Canadian culture: revision and change in the production, reception and study of Canadian literature, film, art and music, especially as related to multiculturalism and recent developments in transnational literary and cultural studies.
    • Being indigenous in Canada Canada’s relation to indigeneity: First Nations and the world; the plans and policies of Justin Trudeau to wield change and bridge continuing social, economic and cultural gaps; “Idle No More” and related activist initiatives involving visibility, land claims and the protection of the environment; outcomes of and follow-ups to the Truth and Reconciliation Committee; contemporary indigenous literature, film, art, music.
    • Canada and the world: Canada’s response to the international refugee crisis; CETA: curse or blessing? The Canadian North as conflicted space; Canada and the US; Canada and Europe: partners in peace?; The legacy of WWII: memory, memorialization, and the prospect of global peace.
    • Canada and (inter)national issues of security, justice and human rights.

    Please send your proposals (300 words) and a brief CV to the conference organizers Prof. dr. Hans Bak and Dr. Mathilde Roza at canadaconference@let.ru.nl by March 1, 2017
