@ChieftanMews: <Abbatoir noises> #5/10: What’s on agenda at the World Policy Forum in Yaroslavl? Congrats to PJ for answering last week, you won a prize.
The 5th of a series of 10 weekly questions tweeted by Chieftan Mews the World Policy Forum is a annual international conference first held in 2009 in Yaroslavl, Russia.
Wikipedia describes it as:
..a permanent international platform for on-going intellectual discussions and practical definition of directions of development of the modern state and its role in ensuring security and stability of the modern world.
The Forum is traditionally held in Yaroslavl (Russia) under the auspices of President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev.

Each year’s conference is focused on a main topic and 3-4 sections, in 2011 this was ‘The modern state in the age of social diversity’ and ran on 7-8th of September.
The 3 sections where ‘Democratic institutions in multiethnic societies’, ‘The rich and the poor: where is justice?’ and ‘Global security and local conflicts’.
The second part of the tweet ‘Congrats to PJ for answering last week, you won a prize.’ is directed towards PJ Harvey who had won a Mercury Music Prize on the 6th of September for ‘Let England Shake’ making her the first artist to win it twice.
Oddly enough it was reported on Digital Spy that sales of her album increased by 1,190% on Amazon overnight following the win.
Previously on August 25th Chieftan Mew’s tweeted a link to the videoclip for The Words that Maketh Murder from Let England Shake along with the message “I’m still banished” you can read more about that here.
<Abbatoir noises> appears on a Kid A era Tour Poster titled ‘Fear Stalks the Land’ along with the lines Mobiles Chirping’ and ‘Our Name is Legion’ which Mew’s has also used in tweets (25 years. Jericho. Friday. Woods. Saturday. Living. Project. Phil’s harmonica. Ago. Carrots&sticks. Bluebook. Mobile Devices & Birds Chirp. ).
We’d love to hear what answers other people sent to Mew’s ‘quiz’!
