Alex Chafuen, na Forbes, sobre patriotismo e cosmopolitanismo num artigo inspirado pelo Estoril Political Forum, organizado pelo Instituto de Estudos Políticos da Universidade Católica Portuguesa: The U.S. Declaration Of Independence: Its Foundations As Key For Better U.S.-European Understanding. Por Alejandro Chafuen.
At most programs I attend in Western Europe there is a lack of diversity. There is adequate country representation but scant ideological differences among speakers. Conspicuously absent are views from most free-market think tanks of the United Kingdom or the United States. An important exception to this takes place at the Estoril Political Forum, which is currently the largest political studies meeting in Portugal.
