Permanent Secretariat to the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates

The Permanent Secretariat to the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates derives from a new and more broadly based collaboration between the International Gorbachev Foundation and the City of Rome for realizing the World Summits of Nobel Peace Laureates. The Permanent Secretariat, based in Rome, is a non-profit association without political aims.

World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates

As well as organizing the tasks of the Summit, the Permanent Secretariat of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates monitors the activities of Nobel Peace Laureates, while promoting the adoption of the “Charter for a world without violence” and supporting the work of the Nobel, who participate in the annual Summits at Rome, as mediators in various conflicts around the world (Article 3 of the Statute).

Our Summit is the most inspirational and largest annual event in the field of peacemaking. It aggregates panel discussions among Nobel Peace Laureates and representatives of the leading international organizations, media, business and government in open forums. It gives the opportunity for group and individual meetings with high-profile leaders from around the globe. It has dedicated Student’s workshops organized in collaboration with international organizations and Nobel Peace Laureates. We share our networking of international and national students groups and young social activists, international delegations, elected officials and businessmen from around the world, promoting a unique discussion environment.






USAID is the lead U.S. Government agency that works to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential.

USAID Marking 50 years of Progress

As a partner, ICV works closely with Development Innovation Ventures (DIV), part of the U.S. Global Development Lab, USAID’s open competition supporting breakthrough solutions to the world’s most intractable development challenges—interventions that could change millions of lives at a fraction of the usual cost.

DIV seeks to bring in new ideas for solving problems facing millions around the world – delivering more impact, for less money, with greater potential for sustainable scale. Inspired by the venture capital experience, DIV uses a tiered, evidence-based funding model to test ideas, gather evidence of what works, find failures quickly and cheaply, without long-term commitments, and continue to support only proven solutions.
