Conclusions of the 2023 Paris Peace Forum

For the sixth year in a row, the Paris Peace Forum brought together key players in global governance on November 10-11 at the Palais Brongniart. The aim of the 2023 Forum was to "Seek Common Ground in a World of Rivalry", against a backdrop of global polarization (most notably between China and the United States) jeopardizing international cooperation on issues vital to humanity – all in an environment marked by the eruption of conflict in the Middle East.

“This year, the Paris Peace Forum offered a modest contribution to addressing the burning crises of today, even though this is primarily the role of States, diplomats, and the UN. Our fundamental mission is the prevention of tomorrow’s conflicts. Since its inception in 2018, the Forum has set itself the goal of building the foundations of peace in the long term, preparing a less chaotic and better regulated world to face the global challenges that threaten us. These are the issues on which the Forum can make a difference.”
