21st-Century UN Reform: Advancing Peace and Security
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM


21st-Century UN Reform: Advancing Peace and Security

Thursday, May 3, 6.30 - 7.45 pm

Co-sponsored by the United States Mission to the United Nations

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has embarked on an ambitious reform agenda that seeks to restructure the UN's bureaucracy and rules to allow for more rapid delivery of critical services to advance peace and security, peacebuilding and development efforts in the field.  This agenda is significant to ensure that the precious funding provided by the biggest contributors to the UN budget - notably the United States - is spent wisely and effectively, and to enable the UN to be part of the solution to the myriad of security, humanitarian and development challenges that it seeks to address around the world.

What are the prospects of these reforms succeeding? Are key member states from the global North (who provide the bulk of the funding) and the global South (who look to the UN for their security and development needs) willing to support these efforts? Our panel of UN experts will address these questions.


Waheguru Pal Singh Sidhu, Clinical Associate Professor, Center for Global Affairs

Panelists to include:

Cherith Norman Chalet, Minister Counselor, UN Management and Reform, U.S. Mission to the UN

Tamrat Samuel, Assistant Secretary-General, UN

Paige Arthur, Deputy Director, NYU Center on International Cooperation
