Who has the power? webinar series:Multistakeholderism and the Corporate Capture of Food Governance
Virtual press briefing for journalists
Central in the fight to tackle the global challenges of worsening hunger and malnutrition, climate chaos, and ecological destruction, lies the need for just and democratic food system governance.
Join us on July 11 and 13 at these online public events organised by IPES Food, the CSIPM Liaison Group for the Autonomous Response to the Food Systems Summit, and the People’s Working Group on Multistakeholderism, to discuss the future of multilateralism, the architecture of global governance in the United Nations, and corporate capture.
A new wave of discussions about the future of multilateralism and the architecture of Global Governance in the UN has started with the preparations for the UN Summit of the Future. These discussions need to be linked and grounded in the history of governance processes and the different domains of the United Nations and multilateralism in general, also because major changes in the global governance structure will have lasting effects on the way how the UN will work in each of these fields.
This public event will link the larger discussion on the future governance architecture of the UN with a debate on the food domain.
