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.
The co-founder of the Forum, ex-Secretary General of Council of Europe Dr Walter Schwimmer said: “In our ever-more fractured and perilous world, it is vital that leading figures from key sectors are able to come together to discuss openly the nature of the opportunities and threats we face today. The DOC Rhodes Forum 2018 offers this much-needed space for dialogue and enables us to form new foundations for collaborative efforts to develop applicable solutions.”
