The Council of Councils (CoC) Report Card on International Cooperation evaluates multilateral efforts to address ten of the world’s most pressing global challenges, from countering transnational terrorism to advancing global health. No country can confront these issues better on its own. Combating the threats, managing the risks, and exploiting the opportunities presented by globalisation require international cooperation.

Chen Dongxiao, Richard N. Haass, Elizabeth Sidiropoulos, and Carlos Ivan Simonsen Leal discuss the mounting challenges to international cooperation today and launch the Council of Councils (CoC) Report Card on International Cooperation. This Report Card surveyed the Council of Councils, a CFR initiative connecting leading foreign policy institutes from twenty-five countries around the world, to provide a benchmark measure of international cooperation year after year, and to help policymakers identify opportunities for breakthrough and prioritise today’s critical issues. The event will present the findings of the 2016–2017 Report Card and discuss implications for global cooperation.

SAIIA is a member of the Council of Councils, an initiative of the US Council on Foreign Relations, that brings together some two dozen think tanks from across the world to debate matters of international cooperation and global governance. The sixth annual meeting of the CoC is taking place in Washington DC on 8-9 May. Every year the CoC releases a Report Card on International Cooperation on a diverse set of issues from development to nuclear proliferation and cyber governance. This year the report will be launched on Tuesday, 9 May 2017 at 8.30am (Eastern Standard Time, or 2.30pm SA time) in Washington DC. SAIIA’s chief executive, Elizabeth Sidiropoulos, will be on the panel.
