On June 24, 2021 the Stimson Center launched its latest report, Beyond UN75: A Roadmap for Inclusive, Networked and Effective Global Governance in an online webinar attended by global academic experts. The report considered various ways to take forward the twelve commitments that make up the essence of the UN75 Declaration. The report was launched during the Stimson Center's participation at the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS) Annual Meeting 2021.
Featured speakers included Richard Ponzio, Senior Fellow and Director, Global Governance, Justice & Governance Program, Stimson Center, Joris Larik, Assistant Professor of Comparative, EU, and International Law, Leiden University and Senior Advisor, Stimson Center, Cristina Petcu, Research Analyst, Global Governance, Justice & Governance Program, Stimson Center, and Banou Arjomand, Research Assistant, Global Governance, Justice & Governance Program, Stimson Center. It was chaired by Professor Sultan Barakat, Director, Center for Conflict and Humanitarian Studies (CHS).

Drawing on insights from past and contemporary scholars and world leaders, the report explores the concepts of a new social contract, a new global deal, and networked and inclusive multilateralism introduced recently by Secretary-General António Guterres to help the United Nations better grapple with 21st century global challenges. It further offers a roadmap for revitalizing global governance between now and 2023, by harnessing the ideas and capabilities of states, civil society, the business community, and international organizations in the run-up to a proposed World Summit on Inclusive Global Governance.
