The Boris Nemtsov Forum shall make a contribution to ensure a European future for Russia. We shall be seeking to facilitate mutual understanding and to further the strengthening of relations between Russia and European countries. The Boris Nemtsov Forum will be a space for meetings and discussions featuring politicians, civil society activists, experts from academia and business from both Russia and Europe. This is a long-term project, and one tailored not only to today’s politicians and public figures but also to a future generation of leaders.

Coming just two months after the Duma elections in Russia, the Boris Nemtsov Forum will showcase a new generation of progressive, open-minded Russians who aspire to political and intellectual leadership, and who will be at the vanguard of Russia’s eventual transformation into a genuinely democratic country and partner of Europe.
