The 5th edition of the Estoril Conferences

The 5th edition of the Estoril Conferences were a one-week series of events held in Cascais, in May 2017, with the Horasis Global Meeting marking the inaugural event of the conference week. Held since 2009, the Estoril Conferences are a meeting place of thinkers and dozens of renowned personalities, gathered to discuss the most pressing issues related to globalization.

Five editions and almost ten years later, three-hundred speakers including Nobel Prize laureates, Heads of State, Ambassadors, politicians, entrepreneurs, academics and journalists have shared their visions on the current world with thousands of spectators.

Throughout all these years we reformed and innovated each new edition of the Estoril Conferences so that they exceeded the earlier in its success. In order for the same to happen in 2017, the organization of the Estoril Conferences identified what is one of the greatest challenges, not only of globalization, but of the XXI Century: The largest migratory movement since World War II.

As such, and because this was a theme that involved many fields of society, the 5th Edition of the Estoril Conferences, that happened between May 29 and May 31, 2017, was exclusively dedicated to the theme: Global Migration.
