Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies

The Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies is a group of member states, international organizations, global partnerships, and other partners. The group is convened by the governments of Brazil, Switzerland, and Sierra Leone, and supported by the Center on International Cooperation.

The Pathfinders have developed the Roadmap for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies, which is also available in French and Spanish. For a summary see the overview and presentation.

The roadmap, which covers all of 2030 Agenda targets for peaceful, just and inclusive societies (SDG16+), was launched at a side event to the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

The Libyan crisis demonstrated the divisions over interventionism that surfaced around the 2003 Iraq invasion remain unresolved. The dividing lines over Libya differed from those over Iraq, with France now advocating interventionism. Yet it was clear that there was still no EU consensus on the criteria for the use of force. This breakdown -- highlighted by Germany's refusal to vote military action at the UN -- raises questions about what the European powers learned from Iraq.

Managing Global Order : Challenges to international order and governance 

Archived Program

The Managing Global Order program (MGO) - joint with the Brookings Institution and the Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) at Stanford University - maps the changing global order; identifies key gaps in the provision of global order functions and multilateral governance arrangements; and facilitates policy dialogue between the established and emerging powers to fill those gaps. MGO produces independent research and policy recommendations for U.S. and international policy makers, and convenes high-level, informal sessions between the United States and the emerging powers.
