Débats Séminaires et tables rondes
Paris

This closed seminar is a collaboration endeavor. A general introduction and two short presentations on legal and political points of view will set the stage for what we hope will be an engaging discussion, under the guidance of an experienced moderator. Each participant will be asked to actively and constructively contribute his or her understanding of the issues at stake. We hope that the seminar will provide a stimulating dialogue and new insights for all participants.
All discussions will take place under the Chatham House Rule.
