Event description


Conference on Indonesian Foreign Policy (CIFP) is the country’s biggest festival of diplomacy and also happens to be the world’s largest foreign policy conference. The chosen theme for this year is “Cooling Off The Hot Peace: Strategic Opportunities and Economic Remedies for a Distressful World,” in which we choose this theme because we believe that the re-emergence of geo-strategic rivalries, mistrust, disruption, and brinkmanship in today’s world affairs — hence the “hot peace” — by far represent the most serious challenge for world peace.

Through this conference, we aim to push the participants to recognize this serious problem and think hard about the strategic and economic opportunities that could turn this dangerous condition of “hot peace” towards more stable, durable, and cooperative world order.
