Panel Abstract
To do a better job of preventing armed conflict and helping its victims, avoiding runaway climate change, averting cross-border economic shocks, and harnessing the ideas, networks, and capabilities of governments, civil society, and the private sector, the world needs a new kind of leadership and vision, combined with new norms, tools, and institutions. Building directly upon recent Stimson Center research, including Beyond UN75: A Roadmap for Inclusive, Networked, and Effective Global Governance (2021) and UN 2.0: Ten Innovations for Global Governance (2020), this proposed panel will showcase the finding and recommendations from the new (June 2023) report “Road to 2023: Our Common Agenda & Beyond.” Specifically, it will offer twenty innovative global ideas to inform preparations for the September 2023 Summit of the Future during UNGA High-Level Week in New York, including by elaborating upon ten of the most innovative proposals introduced in Secretary-General António Guterres’ new Our Common Agenda report. In doing so, the report seeks to contribute to the renewal and reinvigoration of our global governance system to better meet twenty-first-century threats, challenges, and opportunities. It will further present a bold, yet practical roadmap in the lead-up to the 2023 Summit, designed to mobilize a wide range of actors and constituencies and to produce results at the intersection of global security and justice.
