About Paris Peace Forum

The Paris Peace Forum was launched in 2018 by French President Emmanuel Macron to promote collective action on today’s most pressing global issues. The inaugural Forum attracted 65 Heads of State and convened leaders from governmental and corporate sectors as well as from civil society - all united in reaffirming the core message. 

The Paris Peace Forum is now an annual international event focused on reviving and improving global governance. Conceived as a response to rising tensions and the deterioration of the multilateral system, the Forum is based on a simple idea: cooperative solutions are key to tackling global problems and to ensuring durable peace. 

Sciences Po is proud to be one of the eight founding members of this international platform, aimed to place global governance at the top of the international agenda.

PSIA supports this partnership and encourages its students to take an active part in it, seizing the opportunity to gather for the Paris Peace Forum shared values.
