Paris Peace Forum – Objectives

The Paris Peace Forum is part of the drive by the French President, Emmanuel Macron, to reaffirm the importance of multilateralism and collective action in responding to current global challenges.

The aim is to strive towards peace through better global governance and promote means of reducing international tensions including cooperation between States to confront cross-boundary challenges, collective management of global common goods and better regulation of the internet and communication.

A platform for discussion and debate

Inspired by the COP21 model, the Paris Peace Forum will be a place for sharing experiences and innovative solutions bringing together all governance stakeholders including Heads of State and Government, local and national elected representatives, regional and international organizations and civil society in the wider sense (businesses, associations, NGOs, foundations, think tanks, media outlets, religious representatives, unions, etc.).

The aim is to drive forward governance projects by showcasing them, using them as a basis for debates in various formats and promoting networking between project developers and relevant decision makers. The Paris Peace Forum will be centred on five themes: peace and security, the environment, development, digital and new technologies and the inclusive economy.

The Paris Peace Forum Selection Committee has received nearly 900 applications from 116 countries. Of these, 119 projects have been selected to be presented as part of the first Forum.
