Peace, development and human rights in a time of insecurity

In 2015, Agenda 2030 with its 17 sustainability goals was adopted by the UN General Assembly and a new climate agreement was ratified in Paris – two incredibly important milestones for global cooperation. Jan Eliasson, former Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations and alumnus of the School, was one of the driving forces behind Agenda 2030 that shows the way forward for all countries – development, peace and collaboration within the planet’s borders.

The world looks slightly different in 2018. The US president Donald Trump has stated that America will withdraw from the Paris Agreement. Trump’s rhetoric on everything from migration and trade to international security is a clear contrast to his predecessors. The social discussion and media climate is becoming increasingly polarised. In Europe, democratic institutions in countries such as Poland and Hungary are being challenged, and the United Kingdom is on its way out of the European Union. What will this new situation mean for Agenda 2030 and global cooperation? What role should academia play?

Jan Eliasson has extensive experience of top level diplomacy and politics. In this seminar, he will share his experiences from the UN and will look to the future beyond Agenda 2030 that creates a framework for global development, where nobody is left behind.
