Seeking Common Ground in a World of Rivalry

Seeking common ground in a world of rivalry

In a world dominated by a rising US-China rivalry and damaged by conflicts, climate change and the lingering consequences of the pandemic especially on the most vulnerable countries, it is as urgent as ever to find common ground on the governance of global commons and global public goods. But one can wonder if it is still possible to act as “One World”, defend together collective interests and compartmentalize issues while preventing fragmentation from reaching a point of no return. This session will explore how to facilitate a responsible geopolitical dialogue between different types of actors who will share their visions of the world, the future of global governance as well as solutions to reach consensus, create action-oriented coalitions and define norms or pre-norms to deliver effective responses to the urgent challenges of our time.
