We invite top-notch experts to share their analysis on a specific social,  technological, or political trend, and to discuss choices for the future.

Debates are organised in such a way that both panelists and the audience have the opportunity to expose their views. Our moderators ask the hard questions with the goal to disrupt prevailing narratives and to promote intellectual pluralism.
