天空棋牌Since 2003 the Rhodes Forum has brought together leaders from the business, academic, diplomatic and political communities, including current and former heads of state and government, to discuss crucial issues facing the world today. Throughout its history, its hallmark has been the pioneering spirit, inclusiveness, and moral resilience of its participants in their work to tackle the problems we face. Discussions on the most pressing issues of the international agenda. Networking and brainstorm platform for finding the solutions. Senior policy makers, respected academics and researchers, top media.
The Rhodes Forum aims to facilitate a better understanding of the deep changes our societies are undergoing. It will shed light on initiatives that contribute substantially towards sustainable economic development; propose new concepts for the architecture of international governance in the context of shifts in power within the global economy; and it will examine the restoration of civility and promotion of ethical standards in the digital age.
The Forum is organised around three areas of critical global importance:
天空棋牌As the possibility of a global recession looms, the rise of China and India are interesting cases to consider. Against the background of a spectacular record on poverty reduction for millions of Chinese citizens, does the Chinese approach have strong appeal for other struggling economies? Does the Indian model of economic development offer a promising pathway to sustainable development based on democratic foundations? Can solutions be found to solve the problem of global inequality, erase poverty, and simultaneously curb greenhouse gas emissions to meet globally agreed climate policy targets? What would a new model of economic development look like?
Global architecture and global (geo)politics
Today, we are witnessing a reconfiguration – some would say a disintegration – of international institutions and the rise of potential new orders that could completely change the architecture of international governance. The Belt and Road Initiative finds support but also raises concerns about the emergence of a new system of hubs which may alter the character of multilateral cooperation.
New forms of diplomacy in the spheres of science and culture are changing the
天空棋牌 conventional practices of international relations. The Forum will discuss emerging forms of international governance, the potential leaders of these movements, and the broader question of how to promote intercivilisational dialogue.
Digitalised lives, ethical standards, and the revival of civility
Many would agree that global public discourse today has moved away from civilised interpersonal exchange into coarse, unrefined, and unrestrained language that undermines norms that have long been considered basic standards of dialogue between people and civilisations. The internet has become a
powerful tool in facilitating this form of public exchange. In an era of digitalisation, public policy has yet to adequately address the use of
global digital space with the purpose of promoting harmony and social cohesion but without curtailing personal freedom and democratic norms. The return to civility is an important condition for human civilisations to thrive in the era of digitalisation.

CULTURE AND THE RETURN TO CIVILITY
Dialogue is a non-confrontational communication, where both partners are willing to learn from the other and therefore leads much farther into finding new grounds together.I had the honor and the privilege to participate in the 15th edition of the Rhodes Forum last October and it made me triply happy. First, the Forum allowed me to enrich myself from the exchanges of very high level with the participants of proven expertise. Then, I appreciated the interpersonal skills and professionalism of the DOC Research Institute’s team. Finally, island of splendor and culture, Rhodes conquered me. The Rhodes Forum is both a dynamic and a spirit to be preserved
Dialogue of Civilizations’ Rhodes Forum is a great opportunity to enhance collective thinking on multilateral issues and solutions to the major challenges of our time.
We matured from altruists to very sustainable platform for trying to find a way to avoid clash of civilisations and introduce the paradigm of dialogue.
Problems now have no borders, we have to find solutions together. This (Forum) is something that is global.
天空棋牌Rhodes Forum has massive amount of most interesting people that we can find on a planet. Big hand and applause for Rhodes team for bringing people here and put them together.
I loved Rhodes Forum, it was extremely informative, I can really say that.
