Renewing the Commitment to Multilateralism: A High-level Dialogue of the Presidents of the General Assembly, ECOSOC, and the Security Council
About the event
October 31, 2018, 4:00 to 5:30 pm, ECOSOC Chamber, UNHQ, New York
After the terrible events of World War II, humanity progressively created—through the United Nations—an unprecedented and inspiring rule-based international order to contain and prevent large-scale suffering and atrocities through cooperation and respect for agreed norms. In recent years, however, this rule-based order has come under pressure, and we have witnessed a fragmentation of approaches in which multilateralism is viewed with increasing skepticism.
This high-level dialogue will underscore the power of multilateralism to address the world’s most urgent challenges, among them, climate change, sustainable development, protracted humanitarian crises, large-scale human rights abuse, and threats to international peace and security. They are complex, global, cross-border issues that countries cannot address on their own.
Bringing together the Presidents of the General Assembly, ECOSOC, and the Security Council, this high-level dialogue will underscore the value of discussing development, peace and security, and human rights in support of collective objectives.
The event is hosted by the Permanent Missions of Bolivia, Ecuador, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, in association with the Center on International Cooperation.
