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.
