'Developing Strategic Thinking in the European Union - Global Trends 2030' is the focus of a conference organised by the European Strategy and Policy Analysis System (ESPAS) taking place in Brussels on Monday 18 and Tuesday 19 February 2013.
The ESPAS initiative brings together officials from the European Commission, European Parliament, Council of the European Union and the European External Action Service. Together, they are seeking to strengthen the Union's collective administrative capacity to identify and analyse key trends and challenges, as well as the resulting policy choices, which are likely to confront Europe and the wider world in the decades ahead.
The ESPAS conference should help advance this work whilst promoting a stronger global community of those working on long-term trends.
