The governing body of the Forum 2000 Foundation is the Board of Directors. The daily operations of the organization are managed by the Executive Director and Deputy Executive Director. The Forum 2000 employs 5 permanent staff, and varying number of additional staff on short term contracts or volunteers. The foundation cooperates on a long term basis with the Nippon Foundation and Sasakawa Peace Foundation of Japan.
The Forum 2000 Foundation aims to identify the key issues facing civilization and to explore ways in which to prevent escalation of conflicts that have religion, culture or ethnicity as their primary components. We aim to provide a platform to discuss these important topics openly and to enhance global dialogue. Through our activities, we also intend to promote democracy in non-democratic countries and to support the civil society, respect for human rights and religious, cultural and ethnic tolerance in young democracies.
