About AD: 

What are Atlantic Dialogues meant for ? Since their inception in 2012, they have been designed for three main purposes : 

Changing mental maps. Because the South Atlantic Basin has a strong potential as a geopolitical block, the Atlantique Dialogues turn Marrakech into a global hub for high–level dialogues on the broader Atlantic basin.

Conversing on equal terms. The conference makes room for young leaders and voices from the South, allowing an intergenerational and intercontinental dialogue that has become its trademark. It is a unique opportunity for top experts and leaders from Africa, Europe, North America and South America to get together.

Tackling the real issues. Each year, the Atlantic Dialogues are looking at the most salient issues in the Atlantic agenda. This year’s theme, "Overcoming the choke points", is led by obvious trends, with the rise of populism, the US foreign and trade policy, the risk of another international financial crisis and the lack of ressources to face climate change.
