Speakers at this event were Britta Petersen (Observer Research Foundation) and Dr. Vipul Mudgal (Centre for the Study of Developing Societies). 

The second event was held on the 8th of December, 2016 in Berlin on the topic of "The Future of Europe - where does Europe go from here". As a part of this event, questions like Could the European Union fall apart? Where has it gone wrong? What is necessary to re-establish a connection between the EU and its people? Furthermore, how is the EU viewed from the outside? How do emerging global heavyweights like India assess the state of the Union? Has the EU lost its appeal? were addressed. Amongst the distinguished speakers were Richard Kühnel (Head of the Representation of the European Commission in Germany), Abhishek Singh (Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of India Berlin), Rolf-Dieter Krause (Journalist, former Head of the ARD Bureau Brussels), Garima Mohan (Research Associate, Global Public Policy Institute) and Jürgen Osterhage (Moderator, ARD Correspondent).
