Events and seminars

The Challenges Forum organizes a range of innovative events, workshops and seminars each year.

The Annual Forum is the Challenges Forum’s flagship event. A platform for launching current and cutting-edge initiatives on peace operations policy reform including strategic and operational approaches, it invites some 150 leading practitioners, experts and officials from this field. A plethora of geographic and thematic areas are represented as well as equal gender representation among participants.

The Annual Forum is hosted on a rotating basis by a Challenges Forum partner organization.

Workshops and seminars are held on regular basis throughout the year. The purpose is to gather Challenges Forum partners to deliberate on specific issues and projects in close affiliation to the field. Furthermore, events serve to present and discuss results from current research, policy debates and practice, and to engage relevant stakeholders in forthcoming and pressing topics on peace operations.
