Moderators at the Round Table were Vaira Vīķe-Freiberga, Former President of Latvia: Yves Leterme, Former Prime Minister of Belgium; and Daniel Daianu, Former Minister of Finance of Romania. Each session was followed by interaction with the audience and University students asked questions and raised issues of concern. A closing speech  was given by Serageldin at the end of the event.
