Global Governance, International Law, Power & Security 2020 Global Order Colloquium Report

In an era of intensifying competition between great powers and amid a historic, global crisis in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic, where does the United Nations stand?

Our new report explores this crucial question. It synthesizes conversations from across the three days of our recent colloquium, "The UN at 75: Coronavirus and Competition", to consider the promise and realities of the UN system, as well as global governance and international cooperation more broadly.  

It expands on the issues and insights highlighted in these discussions, and raises open questions for researchers and policymakers as they look at how the UN is handling this moment of crisis, and how it and its subsidiary organizations might be reformed.
