Global Commission: Second UN Member States Consultation (New York)

The Commission on Global Security, Justice & Governance held a consultation with representatives of UN Member States in New York on 2 April 2015. This gathering was co-hosted by the German and Brazilian Missions to the United Nations.

Humanity faces a growing range of problems – from an sudden uptick in 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 alike.

To overcome this capacity deficit, The Hague Institute for Global Justice and The Stimson Center have brought together a Commission on Global Security, Justice, and Governance – a select group of eminent statespersons and public intellectuals – to craft reform recommendations for release before next September’s 70th Anniversary Summit of the United Nations.
