Evolution in global governance taking place: Ban

Listen /

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

An evolution in global governance is taking place according to Secretary-General, but it may not be well understood or appreciated just yet.

Ban Ki-moon made the remarks in an address at the International Institute for Startegic Studies in Singapore Friday.

He says we are seeing the power of partnerships and of regional organizations leading to get global results. Mr. Ban pointed to two examples including the call for change in Côte d'Ivoire being led by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union. And in Libya, it was a coalition of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the African Union and the Arab League.

"In more and more crisis zones, global and regional institutions are pushing in the same direction. This is true multilateralism for a multilateral age. This is the beginning of a reshaping of the political landscape for the 21st century – and perhaps even a readjustment of the power politics within the broader UN."
