Call for participants

The 6th Global China Dialogue (GCD VI)

Governance for World Peace

Friday, 6th December 2019
8:30-17:00, The Dialogue, The British Academy
18:30-21:30, Dinner reception, The UK Parliament (by invitation only)

The GCDs were conceived in 2014 as a series of seven annual events that would ideally culminate in proposals for the reform of global governance.

The sixth GCD (GCD VI) will be held in London on the 6th December 2019, and will be the last of the series to take place in the UK. The theme of the Dialogue will be Governance for World Peace. It will highlight crucial settings for the international cooperation that is required for reform to take place, based on the resolution of long-standing conflicts.

Keeping to the format of previous GCDs, GCD VI will have four panel sessions in one day, allowing short presentations and ample time for Q & A. Each session will have a balanced panel of one or two Chinese and two or three participants from the rest of the world. The GCD VI panels include:  

  • Mediation and peace-making in civil conflicts
  • Belt and Road and tension reduction between countries and cultures
  • China's role in multilateral peacekeeping
  • Civilizational values and the promotion of peace

Each presentation or discussion clearly involves a very different scenario, and each will conform to the Chinese ‘red line’: no interference in the internal affairs of another country. However, any reform of global governance inevitably calls for understanding of the internal affairs of other countries. This conundrum will be at the heart of the debates in the GCDs. 

The theme of the seventh GCD (GCD VII) is Reforming Global Governance. It will be co-organised with the Institute of Global Common Development, Tsinghua University, and will take place in Beijing in October 2020.
