About the Forum

Today, the World Public Forum’s community is committed more than ever before to achieving this goal.


Held since 2002, the Rhodes Forum is an annual session of the World Public Forum Dialogue of Civilizations (headquartered in Vienna). From 2016 it will be a key annual event organised by the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute (headquartered in Berlin).

The Rhodes Forum takes place on the Greek island of Rhodes, and gathers from 300 to 600 participants from over 70 countries. Key guests and speakers include serving and former presidents and senior officials, members of the international academic community and business elite, representatives of international non-governmental organisations, diplomats, experts from various fields, and the media.

The Rhodes Forum has consistently sought to promote a new culture of dialogue that is so desperately needed. Today, the World Public Forum’s community is committed more than ever before to achieving this goal.
