Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

A very few organisations today are working to promote the field of foreign policy among the youth of our country. Out of those few, very rarely an organisation stands out and marks its presence on a national as well as global level by organising international conferences and hosting dignitaries such as foreign ambassadors and ministers of different countries.

Youth Forum on Foreign Policy is that organisation which works in the field to promote foreign policy among the youth of India. It is an independent, non partisan, non-profit initiative, which seeks to promote substantive dialogue on India’s foreign policy and make it more responsive to the concerns of our youth. It seeks to promote dialogue and discussion on pressing global issues and provide a platform for young professionals and students to communicate with diplomats, foreign policy experts and foreign policy institutions.

With a humble beginning in 2011 in New Delhi, YFFP has expanded to cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata & Guwahati. Its mission is to forge strong ties with like minded organizations across the globe and make foreign policy a subject of everyday debate & discussion among India’s youth.

Youth Forum on Foreign Policy has previously collaborated with the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India; The American Embassy in India; The British Deputy High Commission, Kolkata; Observor Research Foundation; The Singapore High Commission etc and has hosted eminent dignitaries like Nobel Laureate Mr. Joseph Stiglitz, Member of Parliament Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Infosys Co-founder Dr.Nandan Nilekani among others.

YFFP intends to expand its presence in Delhi and has opened chapters in a few colleges of the University of Delhi. The foreign policy think tank looks forward to providing a platform for young minds to shape the country’s foreign policy.
