50th St. Gallen Symposium "Freedom Revisited": 7–8 May 2020


Welcome to the new blog!

Stimulating our digital symposium

The St. Gallen Symposium is advancing from an annual 3-day-forum held in the idyllic City of St. Gallen, Switzerland, to an all-year-round-debate that happens on- and offline, and in all corners of the world. Today, there are more than 20’000 friends, contributors and followers on our social media channels. The potential of our online community is tremendously high, hence, it deserves to be provided with the next feature allowing for continuous and more in-depth deliberation, reflection, and exchange on contents that matter. Thus, we are proud to launch our own blog today and encourage you to contribute – as author, commentator, questioner, or simply as one of our loyal readers!
