After introducing austerity measures under center-right governments, both countries returned to growth and turned instead into some of the best examples of Europe’s economic recovery. Both are now led by socialist prime ministers, at a time when socialism has suffered major electoral defeats in other parts of Europe. What explains why the Iberian Peninsula has become Europe’s poster child and how sustainable is that situation?[/quadriga_programm][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][quadriga_programm time=”18:00 – 1900″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Portugal and the Economic Crisis” persons=”3260908, 3260902″ person_options=”image_left” columns=”2″ imageoverride=”online_quadrat_sw.png” lang=”en”]Maria Luís Albuquerque served as Portugal’s Minister of Finance at the height of the economic crisis, from 2013 to 2015.

According to Rupert Younger, rather than focusing on uniting the disparate social movements of the nineteenth century, the two most famous intellectuals of their time would today be concerned with the phenomenon of activism and with movements that are lending a voice to the unheard, such as Arab Spring or Occupy Wall Street.[/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”11:00-12.30″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Workshop – Reframing the question” persons=”3217964″ person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”]In this unique workshop, Dr Brennan Jacoby will lead the audience in a dialectical exploration of the process of innovation. Audience members will be challenged to rethink what the act of questioning can and should accomplish, as well as devise and ask themselves new questions to kick-start innovation and trust – in their work and their private lives.[/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”12:30″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Lunch” person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”][/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”13:45-14:45″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Why is a whistle like a weapon?” persons=”3217992″ person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”]Attitudes towards whistleblowing have undergone a sea change in recent years, with increased recognition of the benefits that come to businesses that embrace their people by encouraging them to speak up rather than supress the truth from coming out. Andrew Samuels will discuss how sensitive handling of whistleblowing enable boards to take back control of internal issues, rectify them and learn lessons.[/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”15:00 – 17:30″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Interactive tour of Lisbon” person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”][/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”18:00-19:00″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”How the Lisbon earthquake reinvented Western thought” persons=”3217983″ person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”]In 1755, an earthquake destroyed the city of Lisbon. This natural disaster had a tremendous impact on contemporary thought, and was a landmark event in the development of the Enlightenment. Dr. Susan Neiman will describe exactly how the Lisbon earthquake helped shape the Enlightenment, how the Enlightenment shaped the West, and how the lessons of the Enlightenment can be rethought to fit our own times.[/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”20:00″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Dinner & Networking” person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”]Restaurant A Severa

New research shows that posture has an impact on our way of thinking: for example, striking a powerful, expansive pose actually changes a person’s hormones and behaviour, just as if he or she had real power. Body language can transform minds, which can transform behaviours, which can transform institutions – it all starts with you.  In this session, body language trainer Irina Golovanova will show how leadership and credibility can be transformed by the subtlest of gestures.[/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”10:30-11:30″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Games without frontiers: New play to change the world” persons=”3217995″ person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”]Forget what you thought you knew about games. More than just fun and excitement, play is a working model of flexibility, a vital quality in times of volatility and uncertainty. In his presentation, Professor Dr. Schouten will show a vital link between play, psychological development and learning, and explain how games and play design actively nourishes social innovations, citizen empowerment and culture.[/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”11:30″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Brunch” person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”][/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”12:30-13:30″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”What are we made of?” persons=”3217963″ person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”]Some of the biggest mysteries in the universe are being unravelled at CERN, where physicists and engineers have built the largest and most sophisticated scientific instruments on Earth. Dr. Ana Godinho will share insights into a research organisation where physicists ask some of the most fundamental questions about how the universe evolved after the Big Bang, and our place in it.[/quadriga_programm][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][quadriga_programm time=”13:30-14:30″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Reinventing data as a political weapon” persons=”3217997″ person_options=”image_left” imageoverride=”online_quadrat_sw.png” lang=”en”]Before “fake news” there was “disinformation”, and to fight this age-old threat, democratic societies must apply cognitive security to manage the information environment, be proactive, and out-compete those who spread disinformation. In exploring these issues, Dr. Rand Waltzman will encourage the audience to suggest out of the box solutions to fight disinformation.[/quadriga_programm][quadriga_programm time=”14:30″ id=”D7C141C1-1363-E811-811D-0050569DBEFC” title=”Wrap Up” person_options=”image_left” lang=”en”][/quadriga_programm][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
