Federico Mayor and Roberto Savio: for a global threat, a global response is essential

In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks that hit Paris on Friday 13 November 2015, the web portal ‘Other News’ has published a short article by Federico Mayor, former General Director of UNESCO, and Roberto Savio, founder of the Inter Press Service and Other News, entitled ‘Global Threat, Global Response’.

The article, available at the link in the box below, stresses that terrorism, extreme poverty and environmental issues represent a global threat and, in order to face this threat before it becomes irreversible, a great alliance that puts the United Nations at its centre is essential. To this end, the authors call for a special session of the UN General Assembly for the sole purpose of adopting global measures against these problems, while designing a "road map" leading to the refunding of the United Nations.
