2018 Theme: Global Solutions in a Fragmented World

Deepening inequalities, forced displacement, climate change, and extremism are global challenges. They demand global solutions. Yet intensifying nationalism, xenophobia, and distrust of international cooperation are threatening our ability to collaborate across borders.

  • How can we ensure we meet the scale of these complex challenges?
  • How can we better balance local aspirations with universal goals?
  • What role must Canada and Canadians play?

At the International Forum, students, academics, and professionals will join representatives of governments, civil society, and social movements to learn about and discuss these current shifts in international cooperation. Together, we will explore their implications for inclusive global development.

Join us in Ottawa this January for two days of panels, workshops, discussion, and exchange. Our goal is to spur debate and search for innovations that transcend borders and boundaries.

Check back in fall 2017 for the complete event schedule.
