1 ROME SEMINAR Progressive Politics in Hard Times: Europe s security, immigration and integration challenges April 2016 AGENDA The sessions will be private roundtables of high-ranking politicians and government advisers, as well as leading foreign policy, immigration experts and political strategists from EU countries and the US. They will be carefully chaired and structured with the intention of having frank and interactive debates around the table touching on key themes. The seminar will be held in partnership with the Italian Democratic Party. The seminar series forms a contribution to Policy Network s Progressive Governance meetings. 01 April 2016: Dinner and informal discussion From Hosteria Grappolo d Oro (Piazza della Cancelleria 80, Roma) Theme: Europe s crises (refugees, Brexit ): how do we move towards common and sustainable solutions? - How can the EU better coordinate efforts to master the ongoing and future challenges caused by the arrival of thousands of migrants and refugees? - How can trust between Western and Central/Eastern European countries be restored? - Should European progressives bring forward proposals to bolster EU borders, or intensify cross-border cooperation with neighbouring countries in the Mediterranean? - After the UK-EU deal: can progressives work towards a more differentiated EU?

2 02 April 2016: Seminar hosted by the PD group at the Camera dei Deputati Venue : Hotel Nazionale - Sala Capranichetta (Piazza Montecitorio, Roma) 8.30 Welcome, coffee 9:00 Welcome remarks by and Laura Gravani, secretary of the Democratic Party group in the Italian Chamber of Deputies, and Peter Mandelson, president of Policy Network 9:10 Session 1: Europe s security in the Middle East and North Africa - What should be a common centre-left agenda to tackle the great number of conflict zones in the Middle East, North Africa and Ukraine? - Are military interventions back on the table, or should the centre-left focus on building a strategy around development aid and multilateral/structural diplomacy through international organisations? - To what extend should the EU and national governments encourage other countries (Saudi Arabia, Iran, China, etc.) to play a greater role in conflict resolution? - How prepared are Europe s civilian and military forces to play an active part in rebuilding state structures and keeping peace in countries that have recently experienced war? Coffee break Session 2: The politics of migration: how to make the case for better integration? - Education, employment and social policy: which reforms are needed to turn the integration of new migrants into a success story? - How can the centre-left address the cultural challenges of integration? - How can the centre-left remain electorally above water in the context of migration pressures and against the backdrop of populist threat?
