Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program

Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program

OCP Policy Center is organizing the seventh edition of The Atlantic Dialogues, a high-level conference that has become a tradition since its launch in 2012 by its founding partners the German Marshall Fund of the United States and OCP Policy Center in Morocco. This annual conference convenes influential public- and private-sector leaders from around the Atlantic Basin for open, informal discussion on cross-regional issues and also encourages intergenerational dialogue through its Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders program (ADEL).

Every year, the Atlantic Dialogues Emerging Leaders Program brings together 40 to 50 young leaders, aged 23 to 35, from around the Atlantic basin and Africa, who have demonstrated leadership and initiative in their fields and who aim to shape the regional and global agenda in politics, finance, business, civil society, academia and the media. These rising leaders have displayed leadership capabilities, and have a strong sense of commitment to social and economic issues facing their communities in particular and the world in general.

This yearly program is held two days prior to the Atlantic Dialogues conference, and is a tailor-made policy immersion program that consists of structured group conversations with decision and opinion makers on key Atlantic development and cooperation issues, as well as informal meetings with innovative community leaders and think tank representatives. The ADELs join the Atlantic Dialogues Conference immediately after the program as full participants, and are presented with the unique opportunity to attend this high-level event, network with leading figures of the Atlantic Basin, and speak in different sessions as well as the final plenary dedicated to that specific year’s cohort. The aim of this program was initially to increase intergenerational dialogue within the conference itself, but this notion has been evolving throughout the years.

Young leaders from the around the Atlantic basin who have demonstrated leadership and initiative in their fields, who want to contribute to shaping the regional and global agenda in politics, finance, business, civil society and many other areas, who are eager to network with their peers and older, and who seek to foster and strengthen ties across the Atlantic are invited to apply.

For selected applicants, the OCP Policy Center will cover local travel, meals, and hotel expenses for the duration of the conference. Limited international travel assistance for the selected applicants is also available.
