During the UNGA 77 week in New York, FEPS is expanding its global partnership. Among others, FEPS President Maria João Rodrigues and Senior Fellow Jo Leinen met with Richard Ponzio, Director of Global Governance, Justice and Security Program at the Stimson Center, to discuss the global governance architecture.

In a UNGA side event organised by the Stimson Center and the Global People Assembly, FEPS President participated in the discussion to introduce the Global Future Forum as a key civil society event in 2023 and to launch a collective drafting process to strengthen global governance structures in order to deliver on the 2030 Agenda.

President Maria João Rodrigues also met Dr Michael Broening, Executive Director of FES New York, to discuss how to bring truly progressive perspectives into the discussions around the New Global Deal. FEPS Vice-President Uwe Optenhoegel joined the conversation online.

On the occasion of a side event to the UNGA 77, organised by the Foundation for Global Governance and Sustainability (FOGGS), FEPS President Maria Joao Rodrigues discussed the UN’s ability to transform itself into the inclusive and effective decision-making mechanism that the world needs today and tomorrow. She emphasized that with its existing governance architecture the UN is not prepared to address current global challenges such as modern warfare, justice and equal development, and human right for all. She thus called for a fundamental update of the UN governance system.
