SOUTH-SOUTH COOPERATION FOR DEVELOPMENT: BRIEFING AND CONFERENCE APRIL 25, 11:30am – 5:00pm.
On Thursday, 25 April, the International Studies Association and United Nations Academic Impact will sponsor an afternoon of events around the topic of “South-South Cooperation for Development.” There will be a briefing on the BAPA+40 meeting at City University of New York, followed by an expert roundtable discussion at the UN. All events are free and open to the public.
From 11:30am – 1:00pm the ISA will host a briefing by officials of the UN Office for South-South Cooperation, to discuss the results of the Second High-Level Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40), which was held in Buenos Aires in late March. This briefing will be in the SUNY Graduate Center, 365 5th Ave, New York, room 9204-9205.
From 3:00-5:00pm, the ISA and UN Academic Impact (UNAI) will co-host a conference in UN Headquarters on “South-South cooperation and the UN Development System: Complement, competitor, role model, or threat?” The participants will be ISA scholars and UN personnel involved with South-South Cooperation. Audience members will be invited to ask questions. The ISA is the world’s largest professional organization of scholars of world affairs. This will be part of the ongoing “ISA at UNAI” program to celebrate the upcoming 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations
