Paris Peace Forum (PPF), of which the European Commission is Strategic Partner, will hold its fourth edition later this year, in 11-13 November 2021.

The PPF’s aim is to place global governance at the top of the international agenda. Different stakeholders discuss global governance issues and cooperate on solutions through three main spaces:

Space for Solutions, Space for Debates and Space for Innovations.

This year, the Call for Projects will run until 9 May and  is focused on the following main areas, which are also core for the fourth session of the Forum:

  • Fighting against the Covid-19 crisis
  • Better governing the global commons
  • Better governing the digital world
  • Fighting fake news and threats to the press
  • Protecting the civic space in times of Covid-19
  • Achieving equality among men and women
  • Strengthening South-South cooperation
  • Reforming capitalism through the impact economy.

This Call for Projects is open to all governance actors: states, international bodies, local governments, non-governmental organizations, companies, foundations, development agencies, religious groups, associations, think tanks, universities, etc. The European Commission has being actively participating since the first edition and, as a strategic partner of the Forum, is specially invited to submit its proposals, either through its own projects or in association with other stakeholders. This has certainly helped increase EU’s visibility, while sharing its good experiences, expertise and knowledge in different fields of intervention. It has also contributed to reassert EU’s role in multilateralism and global governance.
