The 17th edition of the Rhodes Forum is occurring at an interesting point in time, just a few weeks before the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. This is considered to be a turning point in modern history and was supposed to mark the victory of the liberal order. It marked a unification that can be difficult to find in the divided world of today.

As DOC CEO Jean-Christophe Bas notes, the world we live in has changed drastically over the last thirty years and continues to be deeply fragmented. This requires a deep thinking about where we are coming from and where we are going, which can be found at the Rhodes Forum this year.

Topics of conversation will include how to mitigate risk of tensions and chaos in the modern world order. Participants will come from all areas of the world to share their unique life experiences and help “shape a positive world that brings people together in a peaceful way”.
