This event is an opportunity to discuss the role of the Global South in multilateralism and the vision of many nations that were sidelined during the creation of the structures of global cooperation that emerged after the Second World War. Nowadays, the Global South is teeming with initiatives for a more equitable and inclusive multilateralism. This debate will offer different perspectives on how global governance may evolve to meet the new challenges, such as climate change and rising inequalities. This Library Talk is part of the celebration of “100 Years of Multilateralism in Geneva (1920-2020)”, reflecting on the multilateralism of the future.

The 2020 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting held in Davos discussed the most pressing global challenges under the banner “Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World”. Political and economic decision makers took a critical look at progress towards the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals and discussed their visions of the future. A selected panel of experts and diplomats who have been at the Forum will present its main highlights and share their views about the outcomes. This Library Talk is part of our series 10 Years to 2030 as we start the final countdown to achieving the Global Goals set out by the Agenda 2030.
