Down with the walls! These confinements that make wars
Edition 2022
23 & 24 September 2022
The Normandy Region will organise the 5th edition of the Normandy World Peace Forum on 23 and 24 September 2022 at the Abbaye-aux-Dames in Caen.

​Down with the walls! These confinements that make wars

It is a paradox. As a result of globalisation and the opening of borders, new walls have been built to divide, separate and mark territories. Walls are increasingly immaterial beyond the lines on the map. Walls are now at the heart of geopolitical issues. However, these walls are not inevitable. Tools such as diplomacy, education and culture can help to overcome all these enclosures.


Forum 2022


On the agenda :

Two major plenary conferences with geopolitical experts, diplomats, government representatives, fifteen debates, the Village for Peace hosting an ephemeral bookshop, exhibitions, concerts, meetings with NGOs and numerous initiatives proposed with Normandy for Peace partners.

New on Saturday, the Forum is open to families with many free interactive and artistic events, live shows and street arts, book signings, testimonials, meetings with authors, etc.
