Missions and values

ln a world where collective action is more urgent than ever but where competition and the complexity of global challenges seem overwhelming, the Paris Peace Forum is a platform open to all seeking to develop coordination, rules, capacities and political momentum.

Year-round support activities and an annual event in November help better organize our planet by convening the world, boosting projects, and incubating multi-actor initiatives.

The 2023 Forum

Seeking Common Ground in a World of Rivalry

In a world dominated by a rising US-China rivalry, it is as urgent as ever to find common ground on the governance of global commons and global public goods in domains like climate change, outer space or critical minerals. Facilitating dialogue, creating action-oriented coalitions and defining norms or pre-norms is our way to deliver efficient responses to the urgent challenges of our time.

Accelerating solutions that make a difference

The Forum is not only about these large deliverables, but it also takes a bottom-up approach to accelerate concrete initiatives. The Paris Peace Forum continues to demonstrate that in a deteriorated international environment it is still possible to advance governance solutions, scale up projects and launch new initiatives. Since its creation, the Forum has supported and accompanied more than 400 projects that respond to the cross-border challenges of our time.
