Aspen Alumni Seminar – Leadership & Character

Real Maestranza de Ronda
17/10/2019 - 20/10/2019

 

Aspen Institute España organized, in cooperation with the Aspen Institute (USA) a new seminar on “Leadership and Character” moderated by Todd Breyfogle, Managing Director of Executive Leadership Seminars at The Aspen Institute (USA). The seminar took place at the Real Maestranza de Caballería of Ronda, from the 17th to 20th of October, 2019. The seminar is an advanced Aspen Seminar, a “second stage” of the classic Aspen Seminar, in which Alumni from the Aspen Seminar had the opportunity to further reflect and debate about values-based leadership and to learn from one another.

What is character? How is it developed? What are the internal resources that contribute to values-based leadership? How do we cultivate, share, and support a leadership culture—within organizations and in society at large—which emphasizes character?

Building upon the experience of the Aspen España Executive Seminar: Transatlantic Values at a Crossroads, the Leadership and Character Seminar probes the internal context of making leadership decisions and exploring the competing tensions that form our moral compass. Topics include moral courage, character and virtue, power and authority, identity and relationships, conscience, and vision. This seminar, moderated by Todd Breyfogle of the Aspen Institute US, is open to alumni of the Seminar on Transatlantic Values at a Crossroads.

Open Conference
November 26th, 19:00h
 Espacio Fundación Telefónica
Fuencarral 3, Madrid

Aspen Institute España and Fundación Telefónica came together again to present a new session for the Program Tech&Society with a conference by Jennifer Bradley on Smart Cities: How to use technology to make cities better for people.  Jennifer Bradley is the founding director of the Center for Urban Innovation  and co-author of  The Metropolitan Revolution (Brookings Press, 2013).  The session was moderated by Juan Lobato, alcalde de Soto del Real.

Technology offers extraordinary tools to improve the quality of life and service delivery in cities.  But, by themselves, new technologies will not deliver more equitable, opportunity-rich, and delightful places.  More city leaders are realizing that the idea of “smart cities” is too limited, and too driven by industry, to capture what residents want from new technology.  What comes after the “smart city,” and how are city governments trying to build and deliver it?  And how can urban residents be more involved in creating the technological infrastructure that shapes public space and the experience of urban life?

The event took place in English with a Spanish sign language translator (LSE). Simultaneous translation devices for Spanish-speakers were also provided.  You could follow the event via live streaming on Fundacíon Teléfonica´s web page, and on social media under the hashtag #TechSociety. Thank you for joining us.

Conference “The Light that Failed”

Fundación Diario de Madrid
28/11/2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Thursday, November 28 at 19:00h
Fundación Diario de Madrid
(Larra 14, Madrid)

Aspen Institute España, the European Council on Foreign Relations (EFCR) Madrid, and the Harvard Club of Spain co-organized the conference “La luz que se apaga” in collaboration with Editorial Debate, a conversation between Ivan Krastev, political scientist and chairman of the Center for Liberal Strategies in Sofia, Bulgaria, and José Ignacio Torreblanca, head of the Madrid office and senior policy fellow of the EFCR.  The session was moderated by Romana Sadurska, board member of Aspen Institute España, executive vice-president of Fundación Profesor Uría and partner emeritus at Uría Menéndez.  The conference celebrated the publication of Ivan Krastev’s book, co-authored with Stephen Holmes, in Spain, The Light that Failed: A Reckoning (Allen Lane, 2019) – La Luz que se apaga: Cómo Occidente ganó la Guerra Fría pero perdió la paz (Debate, 2019).

Why did the West lose its political equilibrium after the Cold War?  The early nineties witnessed what seemed like an unstoppable expansion of Western democratic values in the East.  Nevertheless, changing geo-political attitudes in Oriental Europe provoked a rejection of what was considered a neo-colonialism veiled as liberalism that swept as far as western Europe itself.

In their latest work, Ivan Krastev and Stephen Holmes defend that the foretold «End of History» was nothing more than the start of an «Era of Imitation».  Through an extensive study of the last thirty years of geo-political history, the authors try to demonstrate that the wave of populist xenophobia in countries attempting to establish liberal democracies finds its origin in the Occidentalizing imperative that followed the fall of the Berlin wall.

The event was held in English and could be followed on Linkedin and Twitter using the hashtag #Laluzqueseapaga.

Aspen Institute España inaugurated the  fifth edition of the Global Politics Program with a seminar on “Post-globalization, Identities, and Politics” on the 29th and 30th of November in La Granja, Segovia.

The purpose of the program is to create a space in which individuals with political vocation, dedicated to public service, and who have shown leadership potential can reflect and debate on important political, economic and social questions.  The program is structured into a seminar and four sessions held throughout the year.

In this edition, 28 young political leaders from seven parties got together for two days of debate following the Aspen Method, based on a selection of readings from classic and contemporary authors such as Stefan Zweig, Hannah Arendt, Rachel Botsman, José Ortega y Gasset, Angela Merkel and Michael Ignatieff.

In its mission to create spaces for dialogue and to strengthen democratic values, Aspen Institute España encourages each participant to reflect on topics ranging from geopolitics, ethical leadership and the global economy.  It is a space which helps build personal relationships that go beyond political affiliations, critical for finding common ground between parties and creating innovative solutions to the country ́s problems.

Over the past years, some of Spain’s most important political leaders have passed through the program, and forty reputable speakers have participated in the sessions, including: Javier Solana, President of the Aspen Institute; Hugo Dixon, journalist, entrepreneur, President of InFacts and founding member of the People´s Vote campaign; Robin Wright, journalist and analyst covering international politics; Rebeca Grynspan, Secretary General of SEGIB; Pablo García-Berdoy, former Spanish ambassador to Germany and current permanent Spanish representative at European institutions; Robin Niblett, Director of Chatham House; Oscar Fanjul, Vice-President of Omega Capita and member of the board of trustees at Aspen Institute España.
