Courier Courier
The Summer 2018 edition of Courier considers the future of multilateralism. Is it a tool for applying a nation’s collective intellect to the world’s greatest challenges? Or is it an affront to state sovereignty and an indication of political ineptitude?

Also in this issue, we explore the UN approach to sustaining peace and the Security Council’s role in climate policy; how Cape Town, South Africa is modeling climate action at the local level; and the importance of educating youth on the potential of global citizenship.
