Description

The process of globalization we are in has produced, without a doubt, great opportunities for human beings, but also new challenges. Therefore, it is imperative to find concrete solutions shared by civil society and governments to reinforce human security and world peace.
The roundtables around which this year’s Dialogue is structured are Migrations, Women Peacemakers, Energy and
Democratic Leadership, and the Nuclear Debate. As last year, young people from the East and the West will present their proposals, issued from the two days of closed-door meetings that will be held before the Dialogue at Casa Asia.
Once again, the East-West Dialogue is the result of an active collaboration between Casa Asia and several prestigious institutions such as: UNESCO, the Club of Madrid, the CIDOB Foundation, the Three Cultures Foundation, and the Association of United Nations for Spain.
