The policy dialogues of the Florence School of Transnational Governance provide a platform for representatives from different sectors (academia, civil society, the private sector and the world of policy) to discuss a specific topic and exchange views on the key policy issues on international agendas.
The dialogues aim to encourage open and unconstrained discussions, and provide a testing ground for ideas and possible new policy approaches. Held in accordance with the Chatham House rule, the informal and private setting allows policy-makers to debate the ideas of leading academics with their industry peers free from the constraints of traditional decision-making fora.
The policy dialogues are usually convened at the European University Institute in Florence, but may be hosted by a partner institution or in a hybrid or online format. In addition to the school’s regularly scheduled series focused on our thematic clusters, ad hoc events are organised to address the most pressing policy -issues facing the international community.
