October Goal of the Month - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions

COVID-19 is a stark reminder of the need for cooperation across borders, sectors and generations. The virus knows no boundaries. A coordinated global response is needed to build a better future for all, and global dialogue and cooperation are now more urgent than ever.

To mark its 75th anniversary, the United Nations in January 2020 launched a global conversation to gather public opinion and crowdsource solutions to global challenges. We highlight the results of this unprecedented survey on the future people around the world want – overwhelmingly one where global cooperation plays a vital role in addressing today’s challenges.

This editorial package also looks at 20 years since the adoption of the landmark Security Council resolution on women, peace, and security, why human rights and the rule of law are the backbones of sustainable development, and why recovering and rebuilding from the devastating COVID-19 pandemic will only be truly possible if there is equal access to justice for everyone.
