Programme: Lisbon 2018

Lisbon 2018

Setting Sail for the Digital Age

This year’s 15th Roundtable will take us to Lisbon on the 3rd and 4th of December 2018 and will be generously hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Portuguese Republic with the support of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), Terra Firma Associates and Devex.

As with previous Roundtables, to take advantage of the large numbers of international organizations present in Lisbon, the Portuguese government will also host a career fair on the 5th of December open to all participating multi-lateral organizations. In addition, a welcome reception to launch the Roundtable will be held on the evening of the 2nd December. In keeping with tradition, there will be no registration fees for those events. It is anticipated that registration will open at the beginning of the third quarter.

As always, the Roundtable organizers encourage you to share with us interesting and innovative initiatives you have been working on in the area of career development and talent management by contributing to the clinics, especially those with a strong link to the 2018 theme. We strive to present a balanced programme, with a healthy mix of contributions from the UN, EU, IFIs, the private sector, and academia and would encourage you to send suggestions for clinics to Michael Emery ( and Jan Weidmann (

We invite you to review the 2018 Programme for more information.
