Penn Biden Leaders Dialogue

The Penn Biden Leaders Dialogue features Vice President Joe Biden in conversation with foreign policy leaders from across the country and around the world. A signature initiative of the Penn Biden Center, this forum aims to foster deeper understanding of complex international challenges while inspiring audiences toward greater global engagement.

"This streaming toward nationalism, populism, inward looking, is threatening the international order. But in order to address the issue, we first need to understand what is happening. The first problem is, people are suffering everywhere. They’re suffering from economic changes, they’re suffering from unemployment, from lack of income. These kinds of problems are provoking a lot of fears. People feel under threat, and it’s very easy for any irresponsible politician to define some scapegoat, and blame someone else for those problems."

—President Calderon, September 26, 2017, during the inaugural Penn Biden Leaders Dialogue
