As populism rises across the globe, is it playing on the politics of fear or is it an overdue rebellion of the forgotten? Watch the panel session at the 2017 World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland.
The World Economic Forum engages political, business, academic and other leaders of society in collaborative efforts to shape global, regional and industry agendas. Together with other stakeholders, it works to define challenges, solutions, and actions, always in the spirit of global citizenship.
It serves and builds sustained communities through an integrated concept of high-level meetings, research networks, task forces and digital collaboration.
It delivers unique value to its Partners, Members, and Constituents through its Annual and Regional Meetings, its Centres dedicated to global, regional, and industry issues, its future-oriented communities of New Champions, its expert networks of Global Agenda Councils, its TopLink knowledge and interaction platform and the Forum Academy.
It was established in 1971 as a not-for-profit Foundation and is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. It is independent, impartial and not tied to any special interests, working in close cooperation with the world’s major international organizations.
