The Intellectuals Forum is structured as a side event of the 4th UN Conference, bringing together prominent academics, experts, activists, and opinion leaders and focusing on multiple issues related to the LDCs. It is a novel concept for the LDC Conference, introduced by Turkish Foreign Ministry following a series of consultations with various experts. It aims to take a conscientious intellectual approach to influence the decisions of the official branch of the conference in line with the interests and true needs of the peoples of the LDCs.
