We invite you to a talk on

Global Governance and World Peace

Monday 20th November, 4pm – 6pm+

LEC Training Rooms 1 + 2

All welcome

The importance of good governance, at the state level, for peace and stability is widely recognised. That correlation is not made automatically between global governance and world peace. Despite the emergence of the United Nations, the world does not have a cohesive global architecture; nor is it considered to be a desirable and prudent goal by those who believe in realpolitik. As a result, developing and weaker nations are keener to call for the international rule of law than the strong nations which are confident that they can protect their interests without always subjecting them to strict international regimes of governance. But good and efficient global governance is becoming imperative because of, among others, the rise and spread of asymmetric warfare, regional, intra-regional and intra-state conflicts, climate change, weapons of mass destruction and our economic system demanding a sustainable development agenda. While world statesmen do look at global governance as a positive factor, they apply it in fragments. A new approach is emerging to opt for global governance as a global common beyond the UN to steer the world towards peace and shared prosperity.


The talk will be derived by Sardar Masood Khan, former Ambassador and Permanent Representative  of Pakistan to the United Nations and currently serving as the President of Azad Jammu and Kashmir


Talk (around 40 minutes)

Q & A


For those who want to, we will regroup to discuss what all this means for us personally and our institutions, including the University. The event will bring together people from across the university, Lancaster city and the local area, so that the question can be explored from fresh angles in a lively but relaxed setting. We look forward to seeing you there. For catering purposes please let Michelle Bland know if you will be attending the event via email: isf@lancaster.ac.uk
