Summit discussion: How can everyone benefit from globalization?

Globalization is supposed to bring progress, but some people are being left behind. How can the gains resulting from the globe's growing interdependencies be distributed without certain social groups or regions losing out? That is the topic that participants will discuss on November 14 and 15 at the Vision Europe Summit in Turin – with a Nobel Prize laureate, among others. Be part of the gathering as it's streamed live!

The Vision Europe Summit in Turin will bring together political, civil society and business leaders from throughout the European Union. Be there when the summit commences at 2 pm on Tuesday, November 14. The opening remarks will be given by Michael Spence, American economist and Nobel Prize laureate. Beginning at 2:45 pm, our experts will present proposed solutions for shaping policy at the national and European level. The subsequent discussions at three roundtables will take place according to the Chatham House Rules and will therefore not be broadcast on the Web.

On Wednesday, November 15, viewers can watch the entire conference as it is streamed live. Not only will representatives of various global regions participate in a panel discussion, thereby taking the summit beyond the European level, participants will discuss the ways in which international institutions, such as the EU and the World Trade Organization, are responsible for ensuring that globalization is fair. The summit's agenda, including additional details on speakers and discussion participants, is available here.

The live stream will be active at the following times: on November 14 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and on November 15 from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm. You can view the summit as it is streamed live here.
