Challenges of Today

The 17th edition of the Bratislava Forum will take place on 2-4 June 2022. The aim of this year’s conference is “Building Resilience in the Divided World” against the current challenges the world is facing following the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. The conference will serve as a platform to mobilize the West’s support and action for Ukraine and identify how to successfully tackle autocracies and defend our democratic values and structures in this new geopolitical chessboard.
