We are here to promote global governance to achieve unprecedented measures of prosperity, health, education, peace and justice.

“We, the peoples”—as the UN Charter preamble calls us—have a profound need for effective and credible mechanisms of international cooperation that will serve the current and future interests of humanity as a whole, and safeguard the planetary systems on which we rely.

While interdependence has created tensions between traditional conceptions of national sovereignty and the idea of collective problem solving, the Global Governance Forum believes that joint, coordinated action, based on carefully defined and legitimate common goals, can restore the rapidly diminishing efficacy of current global governance mechanisms.

Given the reality of globalization and current global risks, it is our belief that the national autonomy of states is best served by strengthening the international rule of law, collective security, and collaborative environmental management.
