Antalya Diplomacy Forum: A Global Intellectual Hub in Diplomacy

The third forum

This year’s Antalya Diplomacy Forum 2024, from March 1-3, was held under the auspices of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President of the Republic of Turkey. The event was initiated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey, Hakan Fidan.

The forum, in its third edition, brought together heads of states and governments, ministers, diplomats, business leaders, academics, think-tankers, as well as representatives from youth and media for an extensive debate. The overarching theme for 2024, “Advancing Diplomacy in Times of Turmoil,” aims to provide a comprehensive reflection on the turbulent global period.

The challenges addressed include ongoing wars, acts of terrorism, irregular migration, the rise of xenophobia and Islamophobia, risks associated with AI, climate change, natural disasters, pandemics, and widening socioeconomic gaps. The erosion of trust in the rules-based international order is also identified as a concerning trend, undermining the predictability of the environment in which states operate.
