The Boris Nemtsov Foundation for Freedom, and the Open Russia movement, working in collaboration with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, are launching the Boris Nemtsov Forum – a platform for Russian-European dialogue.

Our objective is to ensure a European future for Russia. We shall be seeking to facilitate mutual understanding and to further the strengthening of relations between Russia and European countries. The Boris Nemtsov Forum must become a space for meetings and discussions featuring politicians, civil activists, representatives of the expert community, and business figures from both Russia and Europe. This is a long-term project, and one tailored not only to today’s politicians and public figures but also to a future generation of leaders.

The inaugural Boris Nemtsov Forum, organised by the Boris Nemtsov Foundation for Freedom, and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation, will be held in Berlin on October 9-10 of this year.

Open Russia will continue the dialogue at a European
Parliament summit on November 16-17.
