Time for bold alliances: The Copenhagen Democracy Summit 2022

The Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft will be present as a partner at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit 2022.

How can democracies turn technological transformation into an opportunity? Is the free world still a leader in technology? Will Europe be able to drive global regulation of the internet, or will big tech continue to be 'too big to control'? And generally: How can we build new cross-border alliances for strong democracies? And what role does the Russian invasion of Ukraine play?  

 
These and other questions will be discussed at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit on 9 and 10 June, where Barack Obama, among others, will give a keynote speech. Click here for the agenda. 


As a partner:in of the conference, the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft together with Alliance of Democracies will organise a panel on SOCIAL MEDIA, WAR AND DEMOCRATIC VALUES on 9 June. The panellists include Vice-President of the EU Commission Věra Jourová, author Marina Weisband, former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Markus Reinisch from Meta. 
The discussion will be moderated by Anna Herrhausen, Executive Director of the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft. 


In addition, Cornelius Adebahr (Policy Fellow/Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft) and Milad Tabesch (Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft) will host a transfer workshop to the topic of Digital Europe 2030 on 10 June, the second publication of which was recently published. Among other things, the focus will be on discussing answers with young leaders to the issue of how fundamental aspects of social and political interaction can succeed under digital conditions by 2030.  


We are also very pleased to contribute in giving young perspectives a voice at the conference and to offer 5 fellows from the Thinking of Europe and Digital Europe series the opportunity to exchange ideas and set impulses.
