Throughout Europe and North America, nations are experiencing what can best be described as bankruptcy—economic, social, moral, and cultural. Moreover, the identity of "the West" that was promoted over the past half-century—"democractic," "tolerant," "liberal"—has begun to crack and splinter under the pressure of mass immigration, multiculturalism, and the natural expression of religious and ethnic identities by non-Europeans.

In its 2013 Leadership Conference, The National Policy Institute will explore the future of identity for European peoples around the globe—who must navigate a world in which so much of what was taken for granted over the past decades will be in question once more.
