Nobel Peace Prize Forum 2020

International Cooperation after COVID-19 : Multilateralism and Global Governance in the Wake of the Corona Pandemic

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize Forum will address how the Corona pandemic is affecting the conditions for international cooperation and global governance, and what the long-term consequences of this might be. 

While most experts agree that the COVID-19 crisis is a game changer in world affairs, they disagree on whether it will strengthen or weaken multilateralism, support or undermine the present international order, or make the world better or less prepared to handle unforeseen global crises in the future.

To address these and other urgent questions related to COVID-19 and international cooperation, the Nobel Peace Prize Forum proudly presents UN Secretary-General António Guterres as this year’s keynote speaker and guest of honour.

António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, 2001 Nobel Peace Prize laureate
