The DOC Research Institute is pleased to announce that its next Dialogue of Civilizations Rhodes Forum will take place on 5-6 October 2018 on the Greek island of Rhodes.
The DOC Rhodes Forum 2018 will continue the Rhodes Forum tradition of shining a light on the most pressing problems that face us, with an emphasis on developing solutions that can be implemented in practice.
Multilateralism will be the central theme for the DOC Rhodes Forum 2018. Leading figures from diverse sectors will come together at Rhodes to:
o Consider how multilateralism can and should work in practice;
o Identify those areas of our multipolar world that nations tend to neglect, and
o develop approaches that help societies achieve lasting and mutually-beneficial cooperation.
While the Rhodes Forum will run under the slogan “Dialogue of Civilizations for Our Common Future”, the 2018 event will be titled as “Making multilateralism work: Enhancing dialogue on peace, security and development.”. As in previous years, the 2018 Forum will focus on finding applicable solutions to pressing problems through dialogue.
Since 2003, the Rhodes Forum has brought together leaders from the business, academic, diplomatic and political communities, including current and former heads of state and government, to discuss crucial issues facing the world. Throughout its history, its hallmark has been the pioneering spirit, inclusiveness, and moral resilience of its participants in their work to tackle the problems we face.
