90 Minute Dialogues

The aim of the 90 Minute Dialogues is to recreate a single Wilton Park session at a central London location to create an opportunity to share expertise and to contribute to policy development on a key issue relating to global security or prosperity. A specialist introduction to a key international policy theme in a round-table, off the record format, is followed by dialogue and debate between 40 to 50 selected experts from both within and outside government.

The second 90 Minute Dialogue addressed the findings of our conference on China’s Priorities after the 18th Party Congress, focusing on key challenges for the country. The discussions between leading experts from the Central Party School of the Communist Party of China and international business leaders were held at the China-Britain Business Council in London in December 2012.

In November 2011, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Spencer P Boyer addressed Foreign policy implications of multiculturalism: strategy and practice, in the context of both US ideals and more practical measures to counter violent extremism, support human rights and promote democracy and tolerance.
