What will 2012 hold? We are anxious to hear the views and predictions of our speakers.” The conference is part of New York University’s La Pietra Dialogues. The Dialogues aim to renew and refocus the transatlantic relationship by convening conversations with world leaders, politicians, intellectuals, academics, journalists, artists and business leaders around some of the most vexing and urgent policy questions that face Europe and the United States.
