DIALOGUE OF CONTINENTS 2022

The End of Abundance, The Birth of Resilience

         

November 28-29

Paris, France

This fifth edition of Dialogue of Continents held a few months after French President Macron announced « the end of abundance » , sought to understand how resilience might come into play in a world of multiple crises  – be it pandemics, wars or climate change – in which increasingly, international economic relations are  weaponized for national security and geopolitical ends.

We were also very pleased to host during this edition two special sessions organized in partnership with the Institute of World Economics and Politics and the Astana Club dialogue platform. The first focused on the future and evolving role for Greater Eurasia in today’s fast changing context and the second on the prospects for Nuclear Security and a Nuclear-Weapon-Free World
