On 24 February 2015 the Permanent Representative of Nigeria to the UN and the Permanent Representative of Japan to the UN together with The Hague Institute for Global Justice and The Stimson Center hosted a luncheon discussion on “Security, Justice and the Future of Global Governance”. This took place in the Permanent Mission of Nigeria to the United Nations in New York.
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 aCommission 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.
During the event the Commission’s co-chair Professor Ibrahim A. Gambari, former Nigerian Foreign Minister and Permanent Representative to the United Nations & UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs together with Commissioner Professor José Antonio Ocampo, Chair of the Committee for Development Policy, an expert committee of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), led the discussion on “Fragile and Conflict-Affected States, Climate Governance and Global Cyber Economy”.
