On 20 January, 2021, Tony Addison, Non-Resident Senior Research Fellow at UNU-WIDER, will be presenting at the Basel Peace Forum 2021. 

In his presentation, he will address the following questions: What are the implications of the low-carbon transition for resource-dependent countries? Which countries would seem most at risk? What challenges do they face?


The Basel Peace Forum was initiated in 2017. The Basel Peace Forum is the first forum in the world to address the topic of peace in an interdisciplinary way. The conference unites experts and decision-makers from business, politics, academia, civil society, diplomacy, and the arts. We bring together people that would otherwise not meet to inspire new ideas for peacebuilding. More information can be found here.

In its upcoming 5th edition, the Basel Peace Forum will tackle these and other questions. In the midst of these turbulent times, the Basel Peace Forum will for the first time move into the digital spheres and bring together handpicked experts and decision-makers from politics, business, civil society, and academia from all over the world.

Participation is by invitation only. The number of participants is limited. If you would like to request an invitation, please contact event organisers.
