Pooran Pandey at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting

The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) is scheduled for 16-20 April in London. Pooran Pandey, Managing Project Director of the DOC in India will be present, representing the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute and the DOC India Office.
Pandey is taking part in various consultations taking place during the CHOGM, where he will meet leaders from politics, business, and civil society organisations.
The summit’s theme is ‘Towards a common future’  and it aims to build links that offer young people access to knowledge and skills and give them a voice on key issues like democracy, human rights, and the rule of law.
Across the Commonwealth, member states face common challenges: weak global trade and investment flows; new cross-border security threats; the effects of climate change on small and other vulnerable states; and threats to our shared values of democracy, good governance and inclusivity as set out in the Commonwealth Charter.
