Best from Boston
Key speakers include former UKIP head Nigel Farage – back for his second visit in the space of a month – and Crown Prince Frederik.

Among those visiting will be ‘The Spotlight Team’ from the Boston Globe, who brought to light the efforts to cover up sexual abuse by the Catholic Church in Boston, which subsequently led to the 2015 film ‘Spotlight’.

The conference will be moderated by DR’s Tine Gøtzsche and BBC’s Nick Robinson.
