  • This year’s edition - Europe: Dialogue with Dissent - will take place on March 9th and 10th, 2019, at a crucial time for Europe and the European Union.
  • For now more than a decade, Europe has faced a plurality of crises, including a severe economic and financial crisis, the blurring of traditional political lines, negotiating effective migration policy responses, addressing challenges to EU membership and navigating its relationship with a U.S. administration that questions the value of the transatlantic partnership.

  • In recognition of these challenges, this year’s Conference will feature various panels, workshops and negotiations to present a broad spectrum of opinions, engage in constructive discourse and explore the realms of policy, business and society.
