Speech on the Role of Peace in Advancing Achievement of SDGs

September 2018 Joris Voorhoeve English

What is worrisome is, more recently, a second movement—a loose array of populist and nationalist groups and governments—have questioned the forward momentum of institutionalized global cooperation.
