The World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates is an annual event in the field of Vadim Zagladin and the Gorbachev Foundation, is chaired by former Soviet President and Nobel Peace laureate Mikhail Gorbachev and co-chaired by former Mayor of Rome Walter Veltroni. The event is organized by Permanent Secretariat of The World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, created in 2006: a non-profit organization based in Rome and Moscow. Summits have taken place annually from 1999.

The 14th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates was scheduled to convene in Cape Town, South Africa in October 2014, but was later cancelled following several Nobel Peace laureates pulling out of the event after the South African government failed to issue a visa to the 14th Dalai Lama.[1] It was reported that China had thanked South Africa for not issuing the Dalai Lama a visa. China was reported as being against the true autonomy of Tibet, something that the Dalai Lama supports.[2]
