On 30 November and 1 December 2023, we hosted our annual Pariser Platz Dialogue event, bringing together high-level decision-makers from Germany, France, and Europe for a multi-day exchange on the most pressing issues facing us today, this year under the title “De-risk and Decarbonise – Carving a common path towards a green and resilient EU”. Over two days, our participants engaged in a variety of Chatham House-style discussions on a range of topics including international climate policy, the future of the Single Market, and EU institutional reform.
The Chatham House portion of the event was made up of seven individual discussions including:
- The future of the single market
- A green industrial strategy for Europe?
- Global decarbonising: A Franco-German push in foreign climate policy?
- Who should pay? Succeeding in a just green transition
- Sovereignty in arms procurement: Can Europe pool its defence production?
- Institutional preconditions: How to ensure the EU’s capacity to act
- Upcoming parliamentary election: Dynamics and likely priorities of the new EU Commission
Following the Chatham House discussions, we hosted a public discussion online in which Pascal Thibaut (Radio France Internationale), Cécile Boutelet (Le Monde), Georgina Wright (Institut Montaigne) and Johannes Lindner (Jacques Delors Centre) discussed the insights and results from the Pariser Platz Dialogue 2023, focusing in particular on the coming European Parliament elections in 2024, the rise of populism in Europe, and the role of democracy in the European project.
