“The United States Meets Europe: A Forum for Young Leaders (USAME) is a network of young, influential people from both sides of the Atlantic who have an active interest in supporting the relationship between the United States and Europe. The Forum meets in Washington, D.C., May 16-21, 2011.
The Forum will focus on the economic, political, cultural, and societal dimensions of the relationship, and the wider context within which this relationship exists. Members join the Forum by taking part in a USAME Weeklong Seminar, during which they will learn about the field of cultural diplomacy, explore the American-European relationships, and take part in challenging group discussions on salient issues.
The Forum will also organize a number of shorter, academic conferences throughout the year that the members are invited to attend and to help organize. Through the ICD Online Forum, members are able to keep in touch with one another and members of the other ICD Forums.”
