    Global Dialogue at Munich Security Conference

    As part of this year’s Munich Security Conference, the BMW Foundation will host a panel discussion on the topic of “Reshuffling the Pieces: Building a New Multilateral Order.” The panel brings together a diverse group of political decision-makers and foreign policy experts to discuss the future of the multilateral order, how it can be reshaped by newly emerging coalitions of states, and what role responsible leaders can play in this geopolitical power play.

    The rise of nationalist politics with a focus on a “nation first” strategy is threatening a global system that has not been perfect but that has so far ensured stability and prosperity. Success in achieving a new multilateral order will take more than consensus-building; it will require a global mindset shift towards responsible leadership.

    Panelists will include Fu Ying (invited), Chairwoman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National People’s Congress, People’s Republic of China; Norbert Röttgen, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, German Bundestag; and Stephen Hadley, former National Security Advisor of the United States of America.

    BMW Foundation Global Table

    Transcending Borders

    In 2019, the BMW Foundation will continue its Global Table leadership series in San Diego, California (USA). Entitled “Transcending Borders,” the program will bring together leaders from all walks of life in the U.S.-Mexican border region.

    At a time when walls and borders dominate the news cycle, the BMW Foundation’s Global Table aims to create a space in which leaders can come together and build bridges. We believe that the San Diego-Tijuana region offers us an extraordinary opportunity not only to illuminate the realities of division and polarization but also to showcase innovative approaches to weaving the social fabric. Together we want to develop ideas and inspiration on how to lead responsibly in divided societies and move toward a peaceful and sustainable future.

    The current Global Table cycle will conclude in October 2019 with the Berlin Global Forum, which will present ideas and initiatives that have emerged from these leadership events.
