The Vienna Policy Conference is an annual convening bringing together civil society, media, academia, policy makers and political thinkers to debate the most pressing issues facing Europe. It takes place in Vienna and is organized by the Open Society Foundations and ERSTE Foundation.

This conference will delve into one of the most important trends driving change in European politics: the dramatic drop in public trust in many political institutions. It will provide a space to discuss new research and analysis of the causes and consequences of the trust gap across the European continent. The Open Society Foundations and ERSTE Foundation have invited politicians, policy researchers, activists, and thinkers to seek new ways to rebuild trust at many levels, and to ensure that public institutions earn public respect in the future.
