Global Cooperation World Leaders

In an increasingly interconnected world, governments face more complex and multidimensional security threats. Violent extremism, cyber attacks, geopolitical tension, climate change, pandemics, financial instability, transnational organized crime and unbridled nuclear proliferation all affect international cohesion and prosperity. Many of today’s key risks cannot be solved by one state alone, making global cooperation ever more crucial.

NYU Washington, DC hosted The Right Honourable Gordon Brown, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and NYU's first Distinguished Global Leader-in-Residence, who assessed this current wave of threats and explore how to address global security challenges. Diane C. Yu, Executive Director of the Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Scholars Program, facilitated the dialogue following the keynote presentation.
