Under the theme “Building Common Ground,” this year’s Berlin Global Dialogue will focus on new ways to cooperate in a fragmented world.

A changing global order, economic pressures, the climate crisis, and rapid technological advancements require new coalitions, partnerships, and institutions for cooperation. At the same time, fragmentation, misinformation, and distrust deteriorate the basis for collaboration.

In this new world order, we need to focus on areas where cooperation is possible - rather than not cooperating at all. While power dynamics and alliances are shifting, the urgency of joint global challenges remains.

Although local viewpoints on approaching these issues may vary, it is essential to bridge these perspectives and recalibrate cooperation.

The 2024 Berlin Global Dialogue will provide a platform to (re-)establish common ground, identify pragmatic areas of cooperation, and drive joint solutions for global challenges.
