Humanity faces a growing range of challenges – from political violence and environmental decay to cyber-insecurity and cross-border economic shocks – with global security and justice implications that need urgent attention but far exceed state and global institutional capacities. To overcome this capacity deficit, The Hague Institute for Global Justice and The Stimson Center have convened a Commission on Global Security, Justice, and Governance, which brings together a select group of eminent statespersons and public intellectuals to craft reform recommendations inadvance of the 70th Anniversary Summit of the United Nations in September 2015.
WHAT: Presentation of a new Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung International Policy Analysis paper by Columbia University Professor José Antonio Ocampo, author and Commission member.
