7th BDCD Meeting

Dr Harris Gleckman, Senior Fellow, Center on Governance and Sustainability, University of Massachusetts, Boston was the guest speaker at the 7th meeting of the Brussels Dialogue on Climate Diplomacy held at the European External Action Service on 27 September 2018. 

In his book, Multistakeholder Governance and Democracy: A Global Challenge, Dr Gleckman contends that multistakeholder governance is being proposed as the new way forward in global governance. For some in civil society and government, it is because they are frustrated with the lack of power of the UN system and multilateralism; for others, particularly in the corporate world, because they want a more direct hand and potentially a legitimate role in global governance.
