A Non-Governmental Organization in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO

List of ICTMD Fora

A Forum is organized by ICTMD in collaboration with other national, regional, and international scholarly organizations on a theme of common concern. The intention of a Forum is to further the free exchange of ideas on a given theme, with the objective of gaining and disseminating new insights. It is designed to provide an environment conducive to overcoming disciplinary and other barriers that often interfere with the recognition and appreciation of differing systems of thought.

To propose a new ICTMD Forum, please consult the relevant Memorandum on the Organization of ICTMD Fora.
