Third seminar of the French-German Future Dialogue 2017 in Warsaw

The French-German Future Dialogue 2017 was joined by ten Polish participants in Warsaw for a last seminar on the future risks for Foreign Policy of the European Union. The trilateral foresight workshop in the Weimar Triangle format allowed finalising the risk analysis to be published at the end of the year.

What future risks for Foreign Policy of the European Union? The year group 2017 of the French-German Future Dialogue arrived in Warsaw on an untypically sunny day for October in Warsaw to meet ten Polish participants to find answers to this question in a trilateral foresight workshop 

What are the possible scenarios and what practical implications would there be? The French, German and Polish participants worked in small groups on a risk analysis to be published at the end of this year. 

At the French Embassy, the group continued the debate on the future of the European Union, on the importance of dialogue and on future challenges with French Ambassador M. Pierre Lévy. A debate in "World Café" format allowed discussing European Defence and Security issues with experts from NATO - the Multinational Corps North East, from PISM and IFRI.

The cultural programme included a guided tour through the old ghetto district by the founder of the 'Stacja Muranow' association and a visit of the famous Palace of culture and science.
