    BMW Foundation European Table

    Migration, Security and European Citizens

    Migration is one of the three main security concerns of European citizens, besides terrorism and extremism. Across Europe, populist politicians are polarizing societies and spreading fear among citizens. Tensions between the EU countries are rising.

    At the European Table in Neuville-Bosc, we want to analyze how the EU can make its citizens feel more secure and what role national governments and civil societies can play in this process. Together with leaders from business, politics, and civil society, we will explore migration not as a security threat but as an opportunity for economic and cultural prosperity. Finally, we want to encourage participants to take concrete initiatives to support this process.

    Transatlantic Core Group

    Connected Cities

    Cities and communities in the United States and Germany are confronted with similar challenges. They play a pivotal role when it comes to finding solutions to global problems, such as, for example, climate change, digitization or migration. Additionally, cities serve as laboratories for social innovation and testing new approaches.

    This is why the Transatlantic Core Group has created a bilateral working group called “Connected Cities.” Leaders from both countries aim to establish a transatlantic dialogue and to foster an exchange of best practices and ideas. Taking the sister cities of Hamburg and Chicago as a starting point, the Connected Cities team concentrates on mapping civic engagement in both cities digitally and on establishing a tandem project in order to match persons with similar interests, professions, and backgrounds.
