Revise, Reboot, Rebuild: Strategies for a Time of Distrust
Convenes March 8 – 10, 2018
Last year, GMF's Brussels Forum strengthened its focus on action-oriented convening. With the introduction of an innovative new conference format, a diverse set of participants engaged in three days of dynamic debate and dialogue, searching for solutions to the problems that affect transatlantic societies.
A year on, old issues remain and new ones have emerged. Many are complex and require urgent, resolute, and multilateral action. Yet across the Atlantic, we face a decline in trust, both in domestic and international spheres. This basic lack of cooperation and communication severely threatens our ability to act.
Under the theme Revise, Reboot, Rebuild: Strategies for a Time of Distrust, GMF's Brussels Forum 2018 is designed to encourage policymakers and experts to work together to directly confront the challenging world we find ourselves in today. We aim to analyze the reasons for the breakdown of trust within and between societies and find new ways to build strong partnerships and networks that support our societies’ democratic ideals. How can we find effective solutions without trust as the foundation? And is there a way to rebuild the trust lost?
