New Policy Forum (NPF)
is an international organization founded by Mikhail Gorbachev
in April 2010 as a successor of the World Policy Forum (2003-2010) – a tribune for informal discussion of the most pressing world issues by the world’s leading political and public figures.
The New Policy Forum aims to bring together current political leaders, veterans of international politics, intellectuals and civil society representatives in a common effort to develop new ideas and new policies for the XXI century.
The main priority of the New Policy Forum at its initial stage is
- Considering issues relating to global governance
- Sovereignty issues and efforts to diminish the negative impact of decisions taken at the government level and having global repercussions
- The role and the future of European development in the contemporary world.
The New Policy Forum launched its activities in Luxembourg on May 21, 2010 by holding the first meeting of the Academic Advisory Council, represented by prominent experts, scholars and mass media figures. The current affairs of the Forum are run by the Board of Directors.
The NPF Charter is incorporated in Luxembourg.
The NPF hosted its first assembly in Sofia, Bulgaria, on October 7-8, 2010.
