On 12–15 June 2016, inter­na­tion­al lead­ing fig­ures in glob­al pol­i­tics will gath­er for the VIII High-Lev­el Meet­ing of the Niza­mi Gan­javi Inter­na­tion­al Cen­ter to dis­cuss and debate the social, polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic chal­lenges and oppor­tu­ni­ties posed by glob­al­i­sa­tion. The meet­ing, which will take place in Andor­ra, pro­vides a space for cur­rent and for­mer Pres­i­dents, Prime Min­is­ters, Min­is­ters and lead­ing schol­ars and experts to engage with one of the most press­ing glob­al issues.

 
The meet­ing will build on the find­ings of the Baku Forum of 2016, which reviewed the chal­lenges of an increas­ing­ly mul­ti­po­lar world and explored options to over­come them. Over 70 for­mer and cur­rent world lead­ers gath­ered in Baku to dis­cuss issues of top pri­or­i­ty such as the future of Rus­sia-West rela­tions, the threat of rad­i­cal­i­sa­tion, he role of women in peace lead­er­ship, or the use of ener­gy secu­ri­ty and inter-faith dia­logue as cat­a­lysts for peace.

 
The out­comes of the VIII High-Lev­el Meet­ing — sub-titled “Glob­al Forces, Local Voic­es” — will serve as a base for fur­ther sum­mits by the Niza­mi Gan­javi Inter­na­tion­al Cen­ter, includ­ing the Fifth Baku Forum in 2017. It rep­re­sents one ele­ment of an ongo­ing high-lev­el dia­logue process which brings togeth­er polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic exper­tise and wis­dom in the pur­suit of uncov­er­ing inno­v­a­tive solu­tions for the good of mankind.
