 The Challenges of Inclusive Multilateralism

This report from the Global Governance Group 10 analyses a world in transition from unipolarity to polycentrism with a greater multiplicity of actors, from states to civil society organisations, private actors, networks, and regional cooperation groups, playing an important role in shaping the future of citizens around the world. A global middle class is demanding a more effective multilateral system to deal with a number of perceived global challenges but in a polycentric world there are both opportunities for greater effectiveness and a danger of fragmentation. The objective of this GG10 report is to start a process of monitoring the adaptation of international institutions to the new realities of power. To do so, the report looks at how global governance institutions are responding to global challenges, in particular those of political participation and of development with dignity in a context of climate change and scarcity. The report places the citizens and their aspirations at the heart of the analysis and it is with this perspective that we monitor the challenges of security with emphasis on the application of the principle of responsibility to protect.

The major ambition of this Report is to contribute to a more effective and inclusive multilateral system, and this ambition is reflected in the composition of the group…Download full report (PDF)

Paris and the Power of Reason – by Álvaro de Vasconcelos
