Past Events

This roundtable, co-hosted by the Center on Governance through Human Rights and the Stimson Center, will discuss how and why anocratic states have become the “new normal.” Studies and research on democracy often focuses on two political regimes: democracy and autocracy. However, decolonization and the decline of totalitarian regimes have multiplied the number of states mixing democratic with autocratic features. 2021 marks the 30th year after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the dramatic paradigm shifts from totalitarianism to liberal and consensus building democracies, but, nevertheless, we see again the rise of hybrid, defective, anocratic, and mixed regime types.

The Coalition for the UN We Need and the Stimson Center will host a roundtable discussion to review recommendations from the Fulfilling the UN75 Declaration Expert Roundtable Series through the lens of a framework of principles for civil society engagement and mobilization – “A People’s Commitment” – that formed part of the UN75 People’s Declaration and Plan for Global Action, adopted in May 2020. The discussion will focus on the requirements for successful implementation of the anticipated intergovernmental process to follow the UN Secretary-General’s report Our Common Agenda, as well as informing participants of the work of C4UN and related participation opportunities.

The Stimson Center will launch its latest report, “Beyond UN75: A Roadmap for Inclusive, Networked & Effective Global Governance.” The report considers the new kinds of tools, networks, and institutions, combined with enlightened global leadership, required to take forward the twelve commitments at the heart of the UN75 Declaration.
