The Dahrendorf Forum is a joint initiative by the Hertie School of Governance and the London School of Economics and Political Science, funded by Stiftung Mercator. Since its creation in 2010, the Dahrendorf project has grown into a major research and policy engagement network focused on debating Europe’s future. It has held three successful Dahrendorf Symposia in Berlin in 2011, 2013, and 2016. Over its first three cycles, the project has gained valuable experience of injecting academic ideas into policy debates. Initially a British-German collaboration, the Dahrendorf initiative has grown into a broader European project, drawing together a wide network from many different countries, with experts coming from academia, politics, business, industry and civil society. The researchers concentrate on generating impact with high-level policymakers and practitioners close to the centers of political action and decision-making in Berlin, London, and Brussels. The 2013 Dahrendorf Symposium ‘Changing the European debate: Focus on Climate Change´ brought into focus various European perspectives on the leading question ‘How to prevent dangerous climate change?’ from a multidimensional lens – economic, political, legal and social. The symposium took place at the Akademie der Künste, Pariser Platz in Berlin, on 14 and 15 November 2013. I was selected to represent Sciences Po and contribute to the 2013 Dahrendorf Symposium. My task was to provide a report and critical analysis of the 5th working group (Europe and the World), which was then uploaded on the official online Dahrendorf blog.
