The Political Network for Values and its allied organizations focus on the need for legislative agenda-setting and collaboration among political peers to promote shared values in a globalized political context.

The Second Transatlantic Summit will bring together members of the European Parliament and national legislators from Europe, Latin America and North America as well as other regions of the world.The Summit will create a forum spotlighting topics regarding the institution of marriage, family, human life, human dignity, religious freedom and freedom of conscience in international organizations. Policy makers will discuss a proposed agenda based on the risks and challenges identified by experts, and will set the ground for its implementation.
