The seventh Asian Forum on Global Governance has brought together young leaders from around the world for a 10-day programme in New Delhi from 12 to 21 January 2018. Shashi Tharoor, former Under-Secretary-General at the UN, acted as patron and moderator.

The first six Asian Forum on Global Governance conventions in New-Delhi centred on the topics 'End of Liberal Internationalism', 'Contest for Mindspace: The Politics of Competing Governance Narratives', 'Resolving Gridlocks – Managing Conflicts on Sovereignty, Economy, Ecology, Technology & Demography', and 'Traditional & Non-Traditional Security Threats in Asia', thus primarily addressing urgent topics of governance in the Asian-Pacific. Above all, the focus was on the 'Great Shift East', the shift in power towards Asia in the wake of economic, demographic, and political developments.

The ZEIT-Stiftung organizes the Asian Forum on Global Governance together with the Observer Research Foundation, a renowned Indian think tank, and also in collaboration with the BMW-Stiftung, the Wadhawan Group, and the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.
