Brussels Forum 2019: June 27-29
A World Disrupted
The past few years have seen many upheavals and disruptions in both domestic and international politics. As a consequence, principles that have stood as the cornerstone of our collective community can no longer be taken for granted. Disruptions, ranging from the current sweeping tide of populism to breakthroughs in technology and innovation, all challenge the customs with which we have grown familiar. Harnessing the positive potential of these forces while mitigating the potential threats they pose requires active discussion and debate. But our ability to find a common ground is falling victim to factionalism and division. This year’s conference aims to push back against this tide.
Brussels Forum will once again take place at the Steigenberger Hotel in Brussels. The conference will start at 2:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 27 and conclude at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 29.
