The Aspen Institute Romania is promoting change through leadership, dialogue, and action to help address the multiple challenges facing our society, our region, and the world.

Aspen Institute Romania is a non-profit, non-governmental platform dedicated to promoting enlightened leadership in Romania and its region and to encouraging open-minded and informed debate among leaders about the challenges facing our societies.

Aspen Institute Romania came about through the serendipitous meeting of likeminded individuals keen on developing an environment for fundamental debates and substantive contribution to Romania’s success as a democracy and open society.

The Aspen Institute Romania mission is twofold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues affecting Romanian society and the region.
