The Brussels Office of the Bertelsmann Stiftung
Annual Brussels Think Tank Dialogue
Registration open: January 31st, 2012
SOLIDARITY AND AUSTERITY: THE 2012 STATE OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,
Venue: The Hotel, Boulevard Waterloo, 38, 1000 Brussels.
The outlook is grim. EU governments are implementing austerity packages; populist and nationalist movements are growing; social discontent rages. Given these challenges, ten leading Brussels-based think tanks have joined forces to discuss the unavoidable issue of Solidarity and Austerity in the European Union at their third annual Brussels Think Tank Dialogue.
In five invitation-only workshops, the Think Tank Dialogue will focus on Energy and Natural Resources, Economic and Social Challenges, the EU Budget, Migration and Integration, and External Relations. These workshops serve to deliver cutting-edge policy analysis and recommendations. The results will then be put to an open plenary session for discussion.
We will have the pleasure to welcome Nicolaj Wammen, Danish Minister for European Affairs, Danuta Hübner, Member of European Parliament, Martin Schulz, Member of the European Parliament, and Jaimini Bhagwati, Ambassador of India to Belgium, Luxembourg and to the European Union among others.
