Sustainable Development Goals and South-South Cooperation

Conflict, Security, and Development Series - Spring 2017

Each Tuesday, the Conflict, Security, and Development Series will examine new research, discuss creative policy approaches, and highlight recent innovations in responding to the challenges of security and development in conflict and post-conflict situations.

This series is co-presented by the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at NYU Law School, the Center for Global Affairs at NYU’s School for Professional Studies, The Program in International Relations at NYU's GSAS, and the Office of International Programs at NYU Wagner.

The adoption of the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has coincided with the rise of the economies in the Global South, notably Brazil, China, and India. These twin occurrences have the potential to make South-South cooperation a key driver for development, instead of being just political rhetoric. This presentation will look at the causes and consequences of the rise of the Global South, its impact on South-South as well as South-North-South cooperation, and prospects for such partnerships to advance the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly in Africa.

Speaker: W.P.S. Sidhu, Visiting Scholar at NYU's Center for Global Affairs; Non-resident Fellow at NYU's Center on International Cooperation
