Spotlight of the Month

The Atlantic Council celebrated the tenth anniversary of its Global Citizen Awards in New York this week on the eve of the opening of the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly, where global leaders convened to address seismic shifts in our global order—from the emergence of a new era of major power competition, to the imminent threat of climate change, to the destabilizing potential of next generation technologies.

Rounding out a momentous week for the Atlantic Council, we hosted a series of events surrounding the dinner including private roundtables with Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev; Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell; and North Macedonian Foreign Minister ‎Nikola Dimitrov and a public event on the crisis in Venezuela that featured the participation of the Colombian Foreign Minister Carlos Holmes Trujillo and the Interim Venezuelan Ambassador to the US Carlos Vecchio.
