About the event

A solution to the major global challenges facing the world today requires more commitment to international cooperation, not less. At the same time, the UN and other arenas for multinational cooperation are under pressure. What role does Norway play? And why are emerging economies like Mexico becoming important partners?

This event is held in conjunction with the forthcoming white paper on Norway's interests, challenges and opportunities in international cooperation. The white paper will come up with proposals on how Norway can defend and strengthen the multilateral system.

The event will be held in English.
