Since the 1960s, the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation has organised more than 250 seminars, workshops and conferences. These meetings are small and generally last a few days, allowing for in-depth discussion. Participants, who come from government, academia, business, media, civil society organisations and social movements, are invited in their personal capacity, thereby stimulating an open and creative exchange of views.
The seminars are intended to achieve concrete results. Some are conducted in an exploratory manner with the aim to examine new areas, while others are specifically focused on the formulation of detailed policy recommendations.
Here is a list of recent seminars.
