About the Forum

It is our pleasure to announce the 15th Anniversary Rhodes Forum, which will take place from 6-7 October 2017  in Rhodes, Greece

The Rhodes Forum has convened each year since 2002, gathering between 300 and 600 participants annually from over 70 countries. 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.

Rhodes Forum will provide a platform for prominent business people, policy-makers, and scholars to engage in wide-ranging debate on the most pressing international agenda.

This year’s Rhodes Forum will comprise overarching themes through which participants will explore social, economic, and political issues. In addition, two focal events will be the Summit on Globalisation and the Future of Democracy, and the Summit on Global Infrastructure Development Scenarios: Where the Interests of Banks, Industries, Governments, and Societies Meet, in which thought leaders from civil society, politics, and the business community will come together to discuss concepts, problems, and solutions to key questions.
