The AEI World Forum 2011

Agenda People Issues

John Cornyn, US Senate (R-Tex.)

Since 1982, a group of prominent international leaders has gathered for three days of serious discussion and enlivening activities. The frank conversation among the assembled individuals has spurred genuine, practical progress on a number of urgent problems in politics and policy. Their meetings have assessed—and have shaped—critical decisions facing the United States and the free world in economics, security, and social welfare.

The AEI World Forum reconvenes March 3–6, 2011, at Sea Island, Georgia.


About the AEI World Forum

Michael Barone, AEI; Rudolph Giuliani, former Mayor, New York City; and William Kristol, The Weekly Standard

The AEI World Forum is an intimate gathering of exceptionally accomplished men and women: senior statesmen from around the globe, business and financial CEOs, as well as seasoned political, economic, and military analysts. Forum sessions candidly evaluate the critical challenges that the United States and the free world face in economics, security, and social welfare. In recent years, Forum discussions have led to genuine, practical progress on a number of urgent problems in politics and policy.

The thirtieth annual World Forum–held for the second time in Sea Island, Georgia–will explore the state of the world economy; the performance of global political, economic, and security institutions; the actions of the new president and Congress; the state of health care in the U.S., and a host of specific issues of policy, commerce, and social welfare. The unique mix of participants’ knowledge, experience, savvy, and talent means the World Forum provides insights and intelligence unavailable at any other gathering.

Sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute, the World Forum is the oldest international gathering of its kind. It is distinguished for its comfortable size (one hundred participants, plus spouses and guests) and emphasis on open dialogue rather than set presentations. Plenary and small group discussions are carefully structured to be candid, provocative, and informative. We place a premium on lively debate, contrarian thinking, and solutions-oriented discussion. Ample time is reserved for social events, sports and recreation, and private meetings. Spouses are included in all World Forum activities.
