French-German Future Dialogue 2016: Seminar III in Madrid


The seminar is part of the "French-German Future Dialogue", a project of the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) and the French Institute of International Relations (IFRI) with the support of the Robert Bosch Foundation. This year’s partner country being Spain,10 participants from Germany, France and Spain respectively with different professional backgrounds will be invited to Madrid to a workshop on youth unemployment in Europe

For the weekend in Madrid we are currently looking for 10 Spanish participants (aged around 26 to 36), who are working in Think Tanks, political institutions, as innovators or as PhD-candidates and are interested in European issues. The core of the seminary is a so-called "Foresight-Workshop" on the topic of youth unemployment in the EU: What has to be done to create equal chances for the future for young Europeans until 2026? The workshop's aim is to adopt methods of back casting in order to develop policy recommendations.

The seminar will be held in English.

The French-German group has already met twice in France and Germany (April 2016 and June 2016). The meeting with the Spanish participants will allow new perspectives and important adjustments of their ideas, so that the whole group can prepare a common paper of young French, German and Spanish citizens on the topic.

The workshop takes place from the 14th to 16th of October 2016 in Alcalá de Henares near Madrid where the French-German participants will have already spent a day preparing the debates.

Potential candidates are invited to send their CV to borck.cerfa@ifri.org .
