In partnership with Nizami Ganjavi International Center (NGIC) & in association with Global Leadership Project

This session will explore the potential role which WAAS and its partners can play in promoting a new institutional design for research and implementation which encompasses all sectors, stakeholders, levels from global to local, and all dimensions of human security; bridges the gaps between disciplines, specialized institutions, piecemeal policies; and also closes the gaps separating research and policy-making from practical implementation. It will consider the types of stakeholders that should be included, the ways in which its functioning would differ from conventional approaches, and the practical steps needed for its establishment.
