Aspen Institute is currently present in nine countries, in addition to Spain. These organizations collaborate with each other and are part of the Aspen Global Network:
Institut Aspen France was founded in 1983 as a nonpartisan, nonprofit, international center for discussion and dialogue. Based in Paris and has two goals: to help leaders identify the challenges they face and seek solutions to contemporary problems and to facilitate informal meetings of leaders from different geographical, cultural, and professional worlds. Aspen France organizes policy programs and leadership seminars to address the major economic, social, and political issues of the day. Aspen France hosts two discussion clubs in Paris and Lyon in which approximately 20 young leaders meet with leading experts and discuss a variety of contemporary issues.
