A New Global Priorities, Practices, and Pathways of the International Community explores the most compelling issues of our time, highlighting key strategies, initiatives, and calls to action. Taking up where the former annual series, A Global Issues Before the U.N., left off, this book sets the work of the U.N. in the context of cross-sectoral perspectives and multi-stakeholder partnerships. To catalyze regenerative solutions for People, Society, and Planet, A New Global Agenda engages visionary thought leaders, advocates, and innovators spanning international policy, academia, private sector, and civil society. This is a must-read for scholars, students, practitioners and global citizens shaping our world today.
A New Global Agenda is edited by Diana Ayton-Shenker, editor and author of A Global Current Issues Before the General Assembly of the United Nations (published with the United Nations Association; Rowman & Littlefield, 2002, and 2001 Editions). Ayton-Shenker is the Global Catalyst Senior Fellow at The New School, and CEO of Global Momenta.
