As the world faces great uncertainty and a complete upheaval of life as we once knew it, international institutions will play an increasingly important role in a global recovery. The effectiveness of institutions such as the United Nations is paramount to the development of policies and initiatives that will help rebuild systems and structures that have been working well, and reform those that may have exacerbated the current crisis. Now is the time to help move the world forward.
Join us in this exciting new initiative by participating in a short two-part survey (continue reading for description and link).
To help position the UN in responding to this rapidly changing world, in the lead-up to the UN/75 Declaration on 21 September, the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute will contribute to the declaration by gathering input from experts in civil society, business, politics, and academia on how the UN – and the institutions of global governance more broadly – can improve to better meet current challenges. To do this, the DOC is conducting a two-round survey (using the Delphi Method) and subsequent qualitative analysis carried out by DOC researchers. In order to ensure that our findings truly represent the opinions and ideas of the world, we are making a special effort to ensure that respondents from the North, South, East, and West are all included.
“As a premier ‘multilateral think tank’ and a global platform of dialogue among cultures and civilisations, the DOC is proud to spearhead this initiative by collecting views from all parts of the world on the future of international cooperation and to reinvent the United Nations at a time when we absolutely need to tackle global challenges. COVID-19 must be a wake up call for humanity and signals the need to push the reset button” declared Jean-Christophe Bas, CEO of the DOC.
If you would like to participate, the survey is open until 23:59 on 29 April 2020. Please follow this link.
