You are here: Home Review 2015 Sessions


What makes the GES unique is its research-based and solutions-oriented nature. As such, most sessions in the program require panelists to work on the solutions they submit to researchers. A few sessions in the program provide insights rather than solutions. GES Insight Sessions provide participants with high-level, forward looking and relevant insights on current global issues. Speakers and moderators will discuss current issues with a view to identify key players, highlight innovative ideas in the area, and pose probing questions.
