The aim of the annual Vision Europe Summit is to bring together experts and policymakers from across Europe to discuss pressing challenges affecting the European continent and beyond. This year the focus is on the ‘Winners and Losers of Globalization’.
Over the past thirty years, economic globalization – the deepening interconnectedness of the world economy driven by increasing flows of people, goods, services, capital and information – has transformed the way people work and live. The effects, however, have been uneven and not everyone has felt the benefits. With the pace of change only likely to accelerate, European countries will be better placed to handle the competing pressures of an integrating global economy, managing risk and capitalizing on opportunities, by working collaboratively and collectively.
At this conference, participants will discuss how to make open societies and open economies sustainable both in Europe and in other parts of the world.
Vision Europe is a collaboration of leading think-tanks and foundations in Europe.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
