The Humanity in Action International Conference is the annual gathering of emerging and established leaders committed to promoting human rights, diversity and active citizenship in their own communities and around the world. The 2018 International Conference will be held from July 5 to July 8 in Strasbourg, France. 

The 2018 International Conference will focus on the European Union as the largest global peace project and one of the primary mechanisms for economic, political, cultural cooperation and advancement of fundamental rights in Europe. About 250 Humanity in Action current Fellows and alumni (Senior Fellows) will convene at the European Parliament in Strasbourg to explore the complex dynamics of European identity, collective memory and remembrance, as well as political, economic, and cultural collaboration. The participants will be drawn from Humanity in Action’s transatlantic network of over 1,700 emerging political, social, and cultural leaders who are committed to strengthening democracy, advancing diversity, and fostering active citizenship. 

The conference will include keynotes, discussions and workshops with leading European and international experts. It will also feature the annual Senior Fellow Reunion Dinner, skills training sessions, networking opportunities and tours within Strasbourg.
