Global Politics Program
This initiative was launched during the academic year 2012-2013. The purpose of the Global Politics Program is to serve as a space for debate between young Spanish politicians and policy-oriented participants dedicated to public service who have demonstrated leadership potential. It aims at providing a well-structured space for discussion, where knowledge and reflection on the issues addressed may find common ground, and where personal ties may be established among participants. The Global Politics Program is structured around various sessions throughout the year, in the form of open discussions and brief presentations from leading experts on relevant issues in the context of politics and public service.
Sessions focus on three main areas of discussion: geopolitics, leadership, ethics, and international economics. Almost 40 speakers have participated in our sessions throughout the various editions of the Program, including Javier Solana, President of Aspen Institute España; Hugo Dixon, Chair of InFacts and Deputy Chair of People’s Vote; Robin Wright, Journalist, Author, and Foreign Policy Analyst; Rebeca Grynspan, Secretary General of SEGIB; Pablo García-Berdoy, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Spain for the European Union; Robin Niblett, director of Chatham House; Óscar Fanjul, Vice-president of Omega Capital and member of the Board of Trustees of Aspen Institute España.
