Pariser Platz Dialogue

The Pariser Platz Dialogue brings together selected decision-makers from France and Germany for a two-day long exchange of ideas. They discuss ongoing transformation processes, shed light on a range of topics and bring in their respective perspectives. With guests from economy, politics, research and civil society, productive debates about novel concepts go hand in hand with opportunities to form international networks.

Our next Pariser Platz Dialogue will be titled “De-Risk and Decarbonise. Carving a common path towards a green and resilient EU” and will take place in Berlin on 30 November – 1 December 2023. We will have two intensive half days of Chatham House discussions with selected high-level guests from France, Germany, and across Europe. These discussions will cover a wide range of topics of interest, be it foreign policy, economics, democracy, geopolitics or finance.

Directly following the Chatham House discussions, we will host a public discussion online, in which selected guests will share insights and discuss the results of the Pariser Platz Dialogue 2023. We would love to see you there!

The next European Parliament elections are right around the corner in June 2024 – Where is the EU headed next? During this public event, Pascal Thibaut (Radio France Internationale), Cécile Boutelet (Le Monde) and Georgina Wright (Institut Montaigne) will discuss the impacts on the EU agenda with Johannes Lindner (Jacques Delors Centre). What is currently under debate in France and Germany? What topics are dominating the social and political discourse? And what does this all mean for the EU’s reform ambitions in climate policy, strategic autonomy, insitutional reforms, and finances?

The discussion will be simultaneously interpreted into English, German and French.
