About the Breaux Symposium
The annual John Breaux Symposium pushes the boundaries of debate around an aspect
of media, politics and public policy. The Symposium aims to harness the expertise
and perspectives of individuals hailing from a variety of fields and backgrounds.
Past Symposia have hosted scholars, journalists, corporate executives, and political and civic leaders. Through keynote speakers, panels and presentations, the intent of the Symposium is to discuss the public’s knowledge about some aspect of our democracy and identify possible actions to increase public awareness and constructive debate.
