2023 Pearson Global Forum

A thin line divides human realities, yet the fundamental desire for simple human existence remains the same. Existing disparity is sending ripple effects throughout the world as we grapple with refugees of war and climate, despotic governments, and both new and protracted global conflicts. It is essential to find paths towards resolution, peace, and stability.

The Pearson Global Forum will convene leading scholars and high-level policymakers from around the world to exchange ideas and maximize the potential for impact in preventing and resolving conflicts and informing policy.
