The Stanley Foundation, in collaboration with Americans for Informed Democracy, is hosting a series of town hall meetings on “Global Governance for a Changing World.” This town hall series features Mark Lagon, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs, and David Shorr, program officer for Policy Analysis and Dialogue at the Stanley Foundation in
This series of town hall meetings comes just after the one-year anniversary of former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s report for sweeping reform in the United Nations, In Larger Freedom. In his report, Annan calls for a collective security system to fight terrorism, an enlarged Security Council, a revamped UN human rights system, and new guidelines for military action. While the reforms are critical to the UN’s continued effectiveness in a changing world, questions remain as to whether the US will support these reforms, which many advocates believe are necessary to address the pressing security and development imperatives of the twenty-first century.
Each town hall meeting will include brief presentations by the speakers followed by an interactive question-and-answer session. These free events are open to the public.
