Carnegie Europe hosted an exclusive policy discussion in Brussels to mark the center’s tenth anniversary. The event convened leading thinkers and actors from across the EU and the world to assess the significant transformations that are reshaping the global order and how they will impact Europe.

William J. Burns, president of the Carnegie Endowment and former U.S. deputy secretary of state, kicked off the half-day discussions. Carnegie Europe experts, together the directors of Carnegie’s global centers in Beirut, Moscow, and New Delhi, provided regional perspectives on the geopolitical trends that will test Europe, the transatlantic relationship, and the international landscape in 2018.
