Brussels Forum 2017
End of Complacency – Era of Action?
March 23-25, 2017
Brussels Forum is an annual high-level meeting of the most influential North American and European political, intellectual, and corporate, leaders to address pressing challenges currently facing both sides of the Atlantic. For the last 12 years, Brussels Forum brought together global voices to help shape a transatlantic agenda that reflects new global realities, trends and threats. Participants include heads of state, senior officials from the European Union institutions and the member states, U.S. Cabinet officials, Congressional representatives, Parliamentarians, academics, and media.
Set around the theme of End of Complacency – Era of Action? Brussels Forum 2017 attracted a diverse group of stakeholders to discuss and propose concrete solutions to today’s challenges. In light of unfolding global events, this year’s program provided a unique platform for conversations on the rise of populist movements and the state of democracy. The new plenary session design, featuring a ‘theatre in the round’ format, encouraged speakers and the audience alike to share their unique ideas, alternative perspectives and conflicting viewpoints in a more participatory fashion.
