The UN, the world’s most legitimate steward of universal values and convener of global actors, has a special responsibility to lead the promotion and manifestation of humankind’s highest ideals. Beyond political compromise and short-term interests, it must serve as the inspiration and model for compelling evolution towards greater wholeness, global community and shared well-being.
You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it.
GVI produces publications on substantive issues from a values perspective, and linked to current events on the UN agenda – from the meaning of the human rights based approach for deeper participation and collaboration, to how values can inform the different but complementary roles of women and men in peace and security. GVI also solicits and hosts articles by UN system actors, so you can hear your own voice in the conversation.
