On 8 June 2021, the Doha Institute’s Center for Conflict and Humanitarian Studies, the West Asia-North Africa Institute, the American University of Beirut, and the Stimson Center convened select experts from the Middle East and North Africa for a webinar discussion on the overarching question: "In marking 75 years of the United Nations, how can the results of last year’s intense reflection now be turned into action and contribute to innovation and strengthening of the world body?" The ideas shared at the event represent an independent, multi-stakeholder contribution to the consultations and substantive preparations for the UN Secretary-General’s forthcoming Our Common Agenda report for strengthening global collective action to realize the UN75 Declaration’s full potential.
