Europe: Challenged at Home and Abroad-35th Annual Camden Conference
February 25, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - February 27, 2022 @ 12:30 pm EST
The 2022 Camden Conference theme will be Europe today – what is happening and what we can anticipate. Europe’s leaders and citizens are facing pervasive economic, political and social challenges, some exacerbated by the global pandemic. How cohesive is the European Union? Where are populist movements headed, and where are democratic institutions under threat? What will happen to the European-United States bond as a new generation of leaders pursue their own agendas with Russia, China, and other countries? When can we rely on Europe, and can Europeans rely on us?
We are pleased to say that we expect to return to our regular venues, taking care to follow the CDC’s and Maine’s guidelines as well as observe any health and safety precautions that those sites may require. Members of the Board and our staff are developing contingency plans in case the health situation changes as we approach February. Naturally we want to ensure that our event will be safe for all.
