Vision Europe Summit 2017

The 2017 Vision Summit is titled "The Winners and Losers of Globalisation"

This years Vision Europe Summit is titled: "The Winners and Losers of Globalisation".

Vision Europe is a consortium of think tanks and foundations, launched in 2015, collaborating to address some of the most pressing public policy challenges facing Europe and its member states. Through research, publications and an annual summit, we aim to be a forum for debate and a source of recommendations to improve evidence-based policy-making at both national and EU level and to foster an appropriate European integration. Over the course of the past two years we addressed the pressing issues of the future of the welfare state as well as migration and refugee flows.

For their 2017 common effort, the Vision Europe partners chose to address the ghost that in the last few years – at least following the great financial crisis of 2008, – has been haunting Europe, and the whole world: globalisation itself. More precisely, we decided to deal with the all-encompassing question of “winners and losers of globalisation”. Our goal, in tackling such a controversial issue, was to go beyond taking stock of the impact of globalisation on economic, political and social systems around the world, and, consistently with the main aim Vision Europe has pursued since it was launched three years ago, to make policy recommendations based on sound scientific analysis.

At the summit, stakeholders drawn from politics, business, civil society and academia will have the opportunity to discuss such recommendations. A conference declaration expressing principles and proposals to make open societies and open economies sustainable will be finalized at the summit.
