About Brussels Forum

GMF's Brussels Forum is the preeminent platform for global leaders, policymakers, and experts across sectors to shape the transatlantic agenda and debate the most pressing global challenges. Brussels Forum showcases diverse voices across regional and demographic backgrounds and promotes dialogue that is candid and open. Speakers of past Brussels Forum editions include Kamala Harris, Vice President, The United States of America; Samantha Power, Administrator, USAID; Jens Stoltenberg, Secretary General, NATO; Josep Borrell, High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, European Union and Margrethe Vestager, Executive Vice President, European Commission, among others.

While societies across the globe are still grappling with the coronavirus pandemic, we are also entering a new normal marked by ongoing social, ethical, economic, and geopolitical upheaval, including increased inequality, democratic backsliding, new workforce patterns, supply chain challenges, and increased geopolitical tension. These tectonic shifts unfold in a year that marks the 75th anniversary of the Marshall Plan, which was a bold and innovative strategy to respond to the devastation and geostrategic challenges of its time. Rebuilding our societies and our alliances following the Covid-19 crisis to face a new level of strategic competition is a similarly daunting task. We can learn from the bold vision and wise generosity of the Marshall Plan and with strong international institutions, a commitment to open societies, and close cooperation among transatlantic and global democratic allies, we can work together to shape smart, cooperative responses to today’s challenges.
