Registration coming in September, along with a detailed programme and practical information.

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, IDDRI organizes a major international conference on October, 12-14 2021 #IDDRINextGen

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted and exacerbated the long-standing challenges that global governance and international cooperation face. It has become clear that our international institutions are not sufficient to deal with these global challenges. 

A key overarching geopolitical issue is our common global environment, whether we are talking about climate change, the loss of biodiversity, or helping developing countries to provide comfort to their populations’ needs in ways that are more in harmony with planetary limits. 

Thinkers, intellectuals and politicians, from around the world, are putting ideas on the table to renew multilateralism. We must hear these voices from Northern, Eastern, Western and Southern countries. To provide an intellectual and pragmatic basis for analyzing the strategies and opportunities for renewing multilateralism focused around sustainable development, IDDRI’s conference programme enables exchanges between Africa, Europe, and Asia and the Pacific in the morning, and with the Americas in the day.

IDDRI is also very pleased to have The Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA) of Sciences Po Paris as its main partner for this event.
