A preview of the 4th edition, 11 – 13 November 2021
Since 2018, the Paris Peace Forum has been the place where heads of state and international organizations meet civil society and the private sector to construct new forms of collective action. The case for improving global coordination could not have been made in a more dramatic way than by the havoc Covid-19 wreaked, with millions of deaths and economies devastated worldwide.

We now need to build back better, but that will not happen if we cannot address the gaps that threaten the global reconstruction:

⚕️📈 Closing the action gap on health and economic recovery

☀️🌊🛰️ Closing the ambition gap for the global commons

🌍 Closing the North-South gap

♀️♂️ Closing the inclusion gap

In November 2021, the fourth edition will focus on spurring a more solid and inclusive recovery by addressing the various gaps in global governance, offering initiatives to better tend to the global commons, and putting forward new principles of action for the post-Covid world.
