On Monday, September 19th, the International Peace Institute (IPI) together with the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP), the Permanent Missions of Denmark and Finland to the UN, the Sasakawa Peace Foundation, and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) New York Office is co-hosting the New York launch of the Multilateralism Index.
The Index provides an evidence-based assessment of multilateralism by measuring changes in international cooperation from 2010 to 2020. By providing a qualitative assessment of the multilateral system, the Index provides an analytic tool to inform decision-making and guide political attention.
While there is consensus that multilateralism is being challenged, the scope and magnitude of this crisis are unknown. Without an agreed set of metrics to track how trends in multilateralism change over time, we will not be able to have informed debates on what and where the most significant challenges lie.
The Multilateralism Index aims to fill this gap. The Index measures participation; performance; and inclusivity across five key domains of multilateralism 1) peace and security; 2) environment; 3) trade; 4) human rights; and 5) global public health.
The discussion at the event will present the key findings of the Index and—discuss concrete ways to create a stronger, more nimble, multilateral system now in order to meet today’s challenges, as well as those in the coming decades.
This event will be streamed live on IPI’s website, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.Register Now
