Announcement from Anders Paalzow, SSE Riga Rector
We are currently heading towards opening up a discussion with the Ministry of Education and Science and intend to find a solution that observes the relevant Latvian legislation as well as the relevant EU directives. I am convinced that we will reach such a solution.
I am overwhelmed by the support shown to the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga and also to me as a person during the last week from Alumni, students as well as other members of the Latvian society. For this my colleagues and I are very grateful.
However, my understanding of Latvian language and politics is good enough to see that the School is being used as a tool in a political game that has nothing do with the School and the appointment of its rector. We will therefore focus on our discussions with the Ministry of Education and Science and not give any further comments on this issue until we have reached a solution.
Rector, SSE Riga
