Nov 9 & 10 | Aspen-GMF Bucharest Forum 2023 A Global Inflection Point – Where Are We Headed?

by Aspen Institute Romania October 31, 2023

The 12th edition of the Aspen – GMF Bucharest Forum, organized by the Aspen Institute Romania and the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF), will take place on 9 – 10 November 2023, in Bucharest. A flagship public diplomacy and strategic convening in the Black Sea region, the Aspen – GMF Bucharest Forum offers a stage to global leaders to engage with the extended Black Sea area, bridging Trans-Atlantic conversations and creating a process of reflection on the region and its impact within the international agendas.

This edition will build upon the previous successful 2022 event, which was hosted with the support of NATO during the NATO Ministers of Foreign Affairs Meeting in Bucharest. Highlights of the past edition may be watched in the short video here.

This year’s edition of Aspen-German Marshall Fund Bucharest Forum will center on the transformations and challenges the wars are generating internationally. Themes to be debated include:

  • hard and cyber security
  • rearmament and regionalization of defense industry
  • geopolitical rearrangements
  • regionalization of chains of production
  • cyber and technological development
  • education as a keystone to societal resilience
  • venture capital and regional start-ups
  • financial markets
  • green economy
  • financing institutions and economic security
  • democracy in a divided world

The annual Aspen- German Marshall Fund Bucharest Forum is a platform for genuine, provocative and forward-looking debate, seeking to put forward the right questions and tackle the complicated issues of a dynamic and volatile regional and international context.

As with every edition, Bucharest Forum will reunite business representatives, officials and strategic community, in a tri-party format that best allows for synergetic analysis and approaches. Participants from Europe, the US, NATO partner countries as well as from Middle East, Africa and Asia will come together for the two days of debate, joined by high level representatives from multilateral institutions and national governments.
