Baku, March 9, AZERTAC
The agenda of the fourth Global Baku Forum will be topped by an array of topical issues, organizers say. Organized by the Nizami Ganjavi International Center in partnership with Azerbaijan State Committee on Work with Diaspora, the forum will be held on March 10-11. Entitled “Towards a Multipolar World”, the forum will see leading figures in global politics discuss the current trends in international relations and human security.
The event will provide a platform for incumbent and former presidents, prime ministers, ministers and leading experts in the field to assess the current state of the world, the most pressing threats to international security, and potential routes to the resolution of problems.
The forum will initiate a global discussion and identify the neces-sary steps to boost trust and joint work among global powers, so that the path to a multipolar world may be one of peace and cooperation.
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 300 delegates from 53 countries will discuss priority issues such as the future of East-West relations, radicalization and extremism, region-specific challenges and opportunities, energy security and inter-faith dialogue, among others.
Day one of the forum will focus on specific major geopolitical crises through facilitated discussions, whereas day two will fea-ture smaller, more targeted, parallel “pep-talks,” in addition to concluding summaries and a call for action.
