Nobel Prize Dialogue: Fact & Fiction - The Future of Democracy

In a big election year, Brussel’s first Nobel Prize Dialogue will gather Nobel Prize laureates, thought leaders and scientists for an exciting evening about how to strengthen democracy.

For the first time, Nobel Prize Outreach and the European Research Council are partnering to organise a Nobel Prize Dialogue in Brussels. In a year when citizens will cast their votes in elections across the world, not least the European elections in June 2024, we are turning our attention to the art and science of democracy and decision-making.
