The third annual conference on Europe and its Neighbourhood, organised in partnership with Chatham House and Al Sharq Forum, will assess how countries across Europe and in its environs can address issues of common concern – security threats, current and emerging conflicts, migration and societal challenges – amidst a volatile and uncertain global order.
As Europe enters a period of significant transformation, the political climate appears to be characterised by a growing diffusion of power, uncertainty about previously entrenched alliance structures, heightened nationalism, a sense of economic vulnerability, an increasing perception of instability crossing borders, and the erosion of traditional conflict resolution actors and mechanisms.
This year’s conference will bring together leading thinkers with an array of perspectives – in terms of both discipline and national background. Solutions to the challenges facing Europe and its neighbourhood demand understanding the range of perceptions about Europe’s role in the world today, and embracing collective efforts to reach sustainable solutions to the benefit of all.
