The United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) is pleased to invite you to the launch of a new UNIDIR report, International Security in 2045: Exploring futures for peace, security and disarmament.

Matters of disarmament and arms control play an important role in the maintenance of international peace and security, as well as more broadly, in the achievement of all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Yet these processes and mechanisms are affected by – and in some cases are also confronted with – a number of interlinked and intersecting issues and crises, in addition to having to keep pace with a variety of evolutions, not least in the field of new and emerging technologies.

This event aims to present and discuss the findings of UNIDIR’s new report. The study employed foresight to explore threats to international security linked to arms control and disarmament, with a view to identifying options for actions which could mitigate the identified challenges. The report and its findings are also pertinent to the recent and ongoing efforts by the United Nations on considering future threats and the future of global cooperation. In Our Common Agenda, the United Nations Secretary-General made a call to hold a Summit of the Future, to enhance cooperation on critical challenges and address gaps in global governance, reinvigorating the multilateral system.

The Summit of the Future is now due to take place in September 2024 and will discuss, among other topics, issues of international peace and security. This new report, along with this event, therefore also aim to serve as a way through which to establish interest in pursuing conversations on these topics in the lead-up to the Summit of the Future.
