Who we are

Daniel Romero-Abreu, Tomás Ferradas and Eduardo Fernández promote this thinktank in order to contribute to understanding the global trends and of the emerging countries in the economy, in social changes, technology and their impact on the international political order. The three founders wish that this entity is constituted in an open meeting space for dialogue, and thus favour the values of cooperation, peace and progress.
