The Paris Peace Forum is a platform that brings together global governance players, supports projects, and builds coalitions to find solutions to the world’s major challenges. Throughout the year, the Forum works to strengthen the governance of global public goods such as space, cyberspace, and the oceans, and to improve international management of significant issues, from the development of artificial intelligence and disruptive technologies to the risk of pandemics and global warming.
