Global Governance: new challenges vs old concerns

The last few weeks of May have been quite intense on the global governance side. The Financing for Development  Forum in New York (22-26 May), the World Health Assembly in Geneva (22-31 May) and the G7 in Taormina (26-27 May) - to mention a few among the various events on the UN agenda -  followed one to the other.

Regrettably, a common thread running through these events is evident - which is the confirmation that the United Nations and the broader global governance are going through a regressive – rather than progressive - historical moment.
