Fourth Global Baku Forum

The meet­ing will build on the find­ings from the Baku Forum of 2015, which reviewed the main chal­lenges to the cur­rent World Order and explored options to over­come them. Over 70 for­mer and cur­rent world lead­ers gath­ered in Baku to dis­cuss issues of top pri­or­ity such as the future of Russia-West rela­tions, the threat of rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion, the promise of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, the role of women in peace lead­er­ship, or the use of energy secu­rity and inter-faith dia­logue as enhancers for dia­logue.

In prepa­ra­tion for Baku, the Nizami Gan­javi Inter­na­tional Cen­ter, in coop­er­a­tion with the Ital­ian Soci­ety for Inter­na­tional Organisation’s Ini­tia­tive for Global Dia­logue in a Mul­ti­po­lar World, will host two days of dis­cus­sions on the use of inter­faith dia­logue to address rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion and extrem­ism. The meet­ing, held in Rome, will review prob­lems of a world that is increas­ingly inter­con­nected, and explore the options for peace­ful coex­is­tence among reli­gions.
