2024 – Summit of the Future: Last chance for the United Nations, the last Western bastion of an ex-bipolar world

It was agreed in September 2020 that the UN will mark its 75th anniversary with a Summit of the Future, an event to be held at the end of 2024. The stakes are historic: to provide a supranational political framework for the multipolar world, which is currently settling in a chaotic manner due to the lack of reform of the global institutions born after the Second World War (today challenged by the competition from new multilateral organisations, such as the BRICS, which also intend to be part of the global governance). The stakes are to reform the organisation to “adapt it to a new era”.[1] Will this Summit of the Future be the summit of the last chance for the future of the international organisation itself and for a functional multipolar world?
