Earlier today at the Peace Palace in The Hague, former U.S. Secretary of State Dr. Madeleine Albright and former Nigerian Foreign Minister and UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Dr. Ibrahim Gambari present Confronting the Crisis of Global Governance, the pathbreaking new Report of the Commission on Global Security, Justice & Governance. More than 350 representatives of the international community, The Hague based International Courts and Tribunals, civil society, and the business community, in the City of Peace & Justice, attended the launch program at the home of the World Court.
In the face of growing mass violence in fragile states, the threat of runaway climate change, and fears of devastating cross-border economic shocks and cyber attacks, the world needs a new kind of leadership, combined with new tools, networks, and institutions. The Commission’s Report offers a vision for just security, to ensure that neither justice nor security imperatives are neglected by critical international policy debates in 2015 and beyond. It further presents a bold, yet practical action plan for innovating global governance, and ways to mobilize diverse actors to advance reform to better respond to 21st century threats, challenges, and opportunities.
