The World after Coronavirus – Trapped in Crisis Mode?
28/29 January 2021
Solution-oriented debates on options for action by national and regional governments, parliamentarians, economic and other social actors are of central importance for shaping international policy. To discuss current issues facing the international community, the Dresden Forum for International Politics has established itself as a high-level platform since 2018. The series takes up international debates and highlights perspectives from different regions of the world. An essential component of the Dresden Forum for International Politics – in addition to the exchange of experts in a expert conference – is the interaction with citizens in the context of a public evening event in the Frauenkirche Dresden.
A continuation of the Dresden Forum for International Politics was planned for January 2021 with the aim of shedding light on the current challenges and geopolitical effects of the global pandemic. Unfortunately, a personal exchange between the participants will not be possible in January 2021 due to the expected very dynamic infection process. After weighing up the alternatives and risks, the decision was therefore made to discontinue the series in 2021 and only continue it in 2022 – in the hope that face-to-face events can be held again then and that a personal exchange of all participants will be possible.
This event is co-financed by tax money based on the budget agreed upon by the members of the Saxon State Parliament.
