Salzburg in the World
Even from its beginnings as the Salzburg Seminar in American Studies,
Salzburg Global Seminar has been more than just a transatlantic-focused
organization. Today, Salzburg Global Fellows come from all the world’s
regions— which is where Salzburg Global programs can be found, too.
Not all Salzburg Global Seminar
programs happen at Schloss
Leopoldskron – connecting Fellows
across the globe and offering
additional sessions to long-running
programs, Salzburg Global held
events on four continents
from 2011 to 2013.
In Europe, events were not only held in
Salzburg but also in London, UK;
Vienna, Austria; Moscow, Russia;
Klingenthal, Strasbourg, France;
The Hague, The Netherlands;
Athens, Greece; and
In North America, Fellows gathered in
Washington, DC; San Jose, CA; Boston, MA;
Philadelphia, PA; and the Mellon Fellow
Community Initiative met in Atlanta, GA,
and Elkins, WV.
In the Middle East and North Africa, in addition
to a Fellowship gathering in Amman, Jordan, a
weekend-long program was held in Cairo, Egypt.
And in Asia, the first ever full-length
session was held in Kyoto, with a public
forum in Tokyo, to mark 25 years
of partnership between
Salzburg Global and
The Nippon Foundation.
Salzburg Global Seminar and The Nippon Foundation mark 25 years of partnership
The first ever full Salzburg Global session was held in Asia to mark
25 years of partnership between Salzburg Global Seminar and
The Nippon Foundation. After a week in Kyoto of expert-led
lectures and “scenario planning” workshops on aging societies,
regional co-operation and energy security, the 30 Fellows traveled
to Tokyo for a public forum to present their ideas. A panel debate
followed, which was broadcast as a special edition of Asian Voices
on NHK World, the Japanese public broadcaster’s English-language
channel, hosted by Salzburg Global Fellow Aiko Doden.

“I OWE AN IMMEASURABLE DEBT OF GRATITUDE
