The Forum will be inaugurated on November 11, 2018, which is also Armistice Day, marking 100 years since the end of World War I. It aims at reviving collective governance, international cooperation, and institution-building given the existing global context.

The Paris Peace Forum is neither a summit nor a conference but a new annual event based on a simple idea: international cooperation is key to tackling global challenges and ensuring durable peace. In order to support collective action, the forum will gather all actors of global governance under one roof for three days.
