2021 Agenda

Pearson Global Forum | Information in Conflict

The knowledge that forms the foundation of our understanding, decisions, advancement, and world is now in question. Scientific fact and proven theorem are being set aside for apocryphal beliefs. The emergence of new conflicts is outpacing the ability of the international community to cope, new rules now govern old disputes, disunity through the spread of populism is creating long-term damage, and disinformation and the abuse of knowledge are taking a devastating toll on our global world. The 2021 Global Forum will be a significant public event with the goal of (virtually) convening leading scholars and high-level policy makers from around the globe to exchange ideas and maximize the potential for impact in preventing and resolving violent conflicts and informing policy.

The fourth annual Pearson Global Forum will be held October 12 - 14, 2021.
