French-American Global Forum
The aim of the French-American Global Forum, a non-profit organization created in 2011, is to organize regular events for large audiences on political and economic affairs, particularly those concerning the United States, North America, France and the European Union.
Each event brings together academics, intellectuals, and experts from France, the U.S. and the rest of the world. It benefits from the support of the French authorities and partners (press, TV, radio, universities, etc.) who supported Romuald Sciora's work and initiatives for several years while he was working in association with the United Nations. The French-American Global Forum also publishes books and essays.
With its different series of prestigious events with The Atlantic, the George Washington Universty, the CSIS, La Maison Francaise of the Embassy of France in Washington and the famous French newspaper Le Monde Diplomatique (a series of debates called "Le Monde Diplomatique Debates – Washington D.C."), the French-American Global Forum is now considered one of the most important transatlantic think-tank.
Its annual fall symposium has become a significant moment for the transatlantic debate. The second one was held in November 2012 during three days: the 27th, 28th and 29th. This major event, held under the patronage of His Excellency François Delattre, Ambassador of France to the United States, was devoted to the transatlantic relations after the election of Francois Holllande and the reelection of Barack Obama. Many roundtables were open to the public. The debate involving international personalities took place at the symposium's closing night and was followed by a reception. The symposium was also the oportunity to present for the first time in America, in his presence, the documentary of the French intelectual Bernard-Henri Levy about the liberation of Lybia.
