Aligning with the UN Secretary General's Our Common Agenda

Can policymakers find strategies for inclusive multilateralism in current developments of the UN system?

This policy brief examines how international organizations can advance multilateral agreements by aligning with the UN Secretary General’s Our Common Agenda (OCA) report.

Using the World Trade Organization (WTO) as a case study, the author discusses how recent efforts have mirrored the OCA’s areas of action, leading to the successful adoption of the “Geneva Package” at the WTO’s 12th Ministerial Conference.

The brief emphasizes the need to implement principles and proposes strategies to strengthen inclusive multilateralism.
