Convenes March 23–25, 2017
GMF's Brussels Forum is the preeminent platform for policymakers and experts across different sectors to shape the transatlantic agenda and debate the most pressing global challenges. Most recently, the U.K.’s vote to leave the EU and the influx of refugees and migrants to Europe are challenging the closest allies of the United States. Both sides of the Atlantic are struggling with uneven economic growth, terrorist threats, an aggressive Russia, and an unstable Middle East. This confluence of crises is fueling inward-looking sentiments and fears about the future. With the shifting political landscape in Europe and the United States as a background, leaders from both sides of the Atlantic will address challenges, both present and future. The transatlantic partners are at a crossroads. It is critical to engage a diverse group of stakeholders and bring new voices into these debates.
