Ibrahim Forum

The Ibrahim Forum is an annual high-level discussion forum convened around one specific issue of critical importance to Africa that demands committed leadership and sound governance.

The Ibrahim Forum is part of the Ibrahim Governance Weekend, the flagship event of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, held every year in a different African country.

The Forum lasts all day and is structured around the topic covered in the Forum Report, punctuated by conversations between Mo and key African personalities.
