We strive to act as a force for good in the world by providing a platform for discussion of multilateral institutions and global governance approaches able to support international peace and prosperity. We help to build trust, relationships and shared understanding across key organisations, countries and regions.
One of the ways in which we do this is to organise dialogues aimed at strengthening the effectiveness of multilateral organisations, in particular the UN. Wilton Park has worked closely with UN departments and agencies across all three of its pillars of peace and security, human rights and development. Climate change related discussions have become one of the most important elements of Wilton Park’s work in the global governance space.
Our scope is global, but we also convene dialogues with a regional or national focus, often bringing people together from the same country or region who otherwise had not met previously. From the Indo-Pacific and Americas, to Europe, Africa and the Middle East, we continue to convene groups to discuss the key challenges facing local, national, regional and global communities. Our engaged youth networks included the British-German Forum (organised since 1986), the Resilient 40 Network of younger African leaders, and the Caribbean 2030 Leaders Network (C2LN).
