The first half of the 2019 Program has officially been announced!
Begin preparing for the 2019 Forum by exploring details of a first collection of multilateral debate sessions on the agenda.
For its second edition, the Call for Projects of the Paris Peace Forum received more than 700 project submissions from 115 countries, led by a wide panel of actors of global governance, such as states, international organizations, NGOs, companies, foundations, philanthropic organizations, development agencies, religious groups, trade unions, think tanks and universities. The Selection Committee evaluated all submissions and made its choice based on a geographically balanced representation. These selected project leaders will be able to showcase their innovative work, with the Forum serving as an opportunity for them to develop, energize, and raise visibility to their project by reaching thousands of actors from across sectors and specialties. Their participation will also bring invaluable practical insight to the Forum and facilitate the exchange of best practices on the most pressing challenges the world faces.
The 2019 Program looks beyond addressing global governance issues based on projects and initiatives, to take a more transversal approach in discussing the pressing challenges related to multilateralism today. A series of discussions on the “governance of governance” touches upon the core topics of the Forum to address transversal questions that affect each of them.
– Anti-globalism and the rise of populism
– Social inequalities or the tension between “end of the world” and “end of the month”
– How multilateralism is doing: The glass half-full and the glass-half-empty
– A better North/South balance in international organizations
The entire Forum Program is carefully constructed to reflect a philosophy of open dialogue between all actors of global governance, focusing on the solutions rather than merely the challenges at hand.
Diverse debate content encourages innovation and communication, in which all voices are heard. Most debates are followed by a Q&A session for direct interaction with the speakers, as well as various opportunities to continue the discussion via the Paris Peace Forum mobile application and across social media platforms.
Sessions are constructed in a variety of innovative formats to consistently encourage close conversations, gather advice from experts and craft sustainable peace. The program favors short and dynamic sessions. Among the various debate formats, the Forum allows for many direct interactions with project leaders and key public figures. In the Hearing sessions, for example, project leaders present their initiative before heads of State and government present to hear their feedback.
Also including the launch of brand new initiatives, the 2019 debates are specially crafted to encourage open dialogue between a multitude of various actors of global governance. Many debates will be followed by a Q&A session for direct interaction with the participants, as well as various opportunities to interact directly via the Paris Peace Forum mobile application.
Sessions are constructed in a variety of innovative formats to consistently encourage close conversations, gather advice from experts and craft sustainable peace. The philosophy of the Forum’s debate program is to ensure a rich diversity of content and multi-stakeholder speakers list representing a comprehensive balance of sectors, themes, and geographical areas.
