The aims of the Estoril Conferences are to create an annual international event to discuss the challenges of globalization, with specific attention being granted to the relationship between the local and the global fields.
This initiative aims to set Cascais, and Portugal, as meeting places for some of the most renowned personalities, international organisations, universities, research and development centres, thinks tanks and non-governmental organisations.
“I think it’s time for the new world to analyze the mistakes of the last 25 years”, said Garry Kasparov at Estoril. (…) “Dictators don’t have plans to build anything, only to make enemies.” (…) “The European Union must start acting like a civil institution. There’s still time to stop what’s happening in Ukraine.”
