During the United Nations General Assembly, world leaders gathered in New York to trumpet their commitments to the multilateral system.
Most leaders–with one notable exception. U.S. President Donald Trump took to the U.N. stage to tout his policy of nationalism.
To discuss the role of the United Nations in today’s world:
- Stephane Dujarric is the spokesperson for the U.N. Secretary General.
To discuss the future of multilateralism in the face of growing protectionism:
- Sarah Cliffe is the director of New York University’s Center on International Cooperation.
- Victor Gao is vice president of the Center for China and Globalization.
- John Sitilides is a global risk analyst and principal with Trilogy Advisors.
Innovation can happen anywhere. In @TheEconomist, I argue that the best way to guarantee that everyone benefits from the next great idea is to maintain strong ties around the world. #OpenFuture https://t.co/M6jtunsWeg
