Abbas Abbasov, Executive Director of the Baku Initiative Group (BIG), joined Carlyle G. Corbin, an International Advisor on Governance and an independent expert for the United Nations Special Committee on Decolonization, along with representatives from the Turkish government at the event.

The conference was followed by a panel discussion themed "Impacts of colonization on national identity". The discussion covered a range of topics, including ethnic and cultural discrimination, political instability, repression, political history, social and economic challenges, persecution of independent media, security concerns, and the consequences for immigration, emigration, and expatriates.

The second session explored the artificial legal barriers imposed by the French government during the renaissance-era decolonization. Topics include border issues, security and defense, national resource ownership, international recognition, citizenship concerns, legislation, and economic reforms.
