New York Times Athens Democracy Forum 2017

13 September 2017 @ 10:00 - 17 September 2017 @ 17:00

The New York Times Athens Democracy Forum has never been more urgent, relevant or important. On September 13-17, leading policy makers, business leaders, scholars and other experts will assemble to define, assess and tackle the critical questions about the world at this moment.

The forum includes the Central and Eastern European Symposium, an evening concert at the ancient theater of Herod Atticus dedicated to Maria Callas, the “Film and Democracy Weekend” to be held at Costa Navarino. Moreover, within the framework of the forum, the City of Athens will honor former Prime Minister of Spain Felipe González with the City of Athens Democracy Award.

As a thematic side event to the Athens Democracy Forum, the CEE Symposium will bring together internationally renowned experts and intellectuals to debate the quality of democracy and the challenges they represent for its future in the CEE region.

The Forum’s sessions in Athens will be taking place at the Zappeion Mansion and the Grande Bretagne Hotel.

The Forum is organized by the New York Times in collaboration with the United Nations (UN) Democracy Fund, the City of Athens and “Kathimerini” Greek daily newspaper with the support of UN Secretary General António Guterres.
