The World Peace Forum, founded in 2012, is a non-governmental annual forum on international security hosted by Tsinghua University and co-organized by the Chinese People's Institute of Foreign Affairs. To date, it has held eight annual offline meetings, and in 2020, due to COVID-19, a special video conference was held instead. The World Peace Forum adheres to openness, inclusiveness, freedom and equality, and provides a platform for participants from all countries to express their views, exchange ideas and expound plans, encompassing issues on global, regional and thematic security.
