The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced global rifts. What does this mean for our ability to respond to the intertwined medical emergency and economic crisis? How does the increased tension affect our capacity to address other global emergencies and challenges? What is the future of multilateralism? Can the global architecture cope with these tectonic shifts? Many countries, especially those in the developing world, rely heavily on the multilateral institutions. How will they fare in a more fractured world? Who will defend the global commons? Is there a way to restore the common ground?

The Maryam Forum is a new multi-year platform aiming to encourage the shift towards evidence-informed, transparent, accountable and inclusive leadership. Introduced on the global stage in Davos during the World Economic Forum (WEF) in January 2020, Maryam Forum is a collaboration between policy makers, academics, business leaders and media that engages the LSE across departments and disciplines. Together with our students – the leaders of tomorrow – we will convene Maryam Co-Labs, leading up to our first annual Global Conference in December. From climate change, health crises and other global emergencies, to industrial policy, populism and migration, these year-round working groups will tackle the most urgent challenges of our time - providing opportunities to exchange expertise and shape solutions, and unlocking the potential for inclusive and sustainable leadership across all regions of the world.
