The 2016 J Global-Chatham House-FCI Forum: Strategy and Vision for 21st Century Eurasia
Baroness Ashton, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (2009-14); Vice President, European Commission (2010-14)
Taro Aso, Finance Minister of Japan; Prime Minister of Japan (2008-09)
The conference, the third in the series, will discuss the prospects for increased cooperation and integration in Asia and Europe, including a focus on differing conceptions of ‘Eurasia’. It will examine the ways in which regional economic integration might be developed, the obstacles that might preclude such progress, as well as the currents of populism and ‘neo-isolationism’ that have risen in both regions.
The forum is jointly organized by Chatham House, the JoongAng Ilbo and the Future Consensus Institute (Yeosijae).
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
