The Montreal International Forum (FIM) was established in 1998 as an international NGO think tank with the goal of improving the influence of international civil society on the United Nations and the multilateral system. FIM believes that that through strengthening the interaction between civil society and multilateral institutions, it will be possible to better address the worst global problems like extreme poverty, wars, human rights violations and environment degradation. FIM provides a neutral and impartial setting for holding meetings that favor dialogue, reflection and active learning about the interaction between civil society and the multilateral system. In so doing, these meetings enable practitioners from the civil society to draw lessons from NGO experiences that can strengthen the voice and participation of civil society actors in all multilateral institutions.
