The report is published by the Stimson Center, a leading international affairs think tank based in Washington, D.C. The report contains a foreword by former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and former Norwegian Prime Minister and Chair of the World Commission on Environment and Development Gro Harlem Brundtland.
2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the signing of the Charter of the United Nations. To commemorate this occasion, the UN General Assembly will adopt a special declaration at its meeting in September, the contents of which have been finalised recently. As world leaders and global civil society pursue the inextricably linked issues of 'reform and recovery,' their interplay can generate political momentum for overhauling global governance on difficult and contested issues and renew a greater sense of shared global responsibility. This report aspires to inform and shape this important conversation.
