Global challenges, local answers​

The second edition of the Estoril Conferences on Global Challenges, Local Answers took place between 4 and 6 May at the Estoril Congress Centre. The conference gathered distinguished speakers who discussed current issues of globalisation throughout the course of four thematic panels: the architecture of global governance; the consequences of the economic and financial crisis; the major challenges to human security; and the impact of globalisation on domestic policies.

This edition gave a particular emphasis on the political and social transformations that was taking place in the Maghreb and the Middle East. Special attention was also paid to the euro crisis and its impact on European integration.
