Requirements of Multilateral Governance 25 All of this cries out for new forms of international cooperation that focus on enhancing multilateral capacities – perhaps with the United Nations, or perhaps beyond it – for: establishing global norms and standards where appropriate; building consensuses regarding goals and priorities; responding to threats to human security; providing for the welfare of starving people, sick children and others who cannot provide for themselves; providing relevant models, training and making other nonmaterial resource transfers; promoting partnerships among widely differing elements of civil society; facilitating networking processes and serving as nodes and linking pins for exchange of information and other resources in our network society.

Enhancing human security means that individuals sense and perceive themselves as increasingly secure. Human security also bridges the traditional bifurcation of international organizations’ agendas where questions of ‘war and peace’ have been quite strictly separated from ‘economic and social’ issues. Within this new conceptualization, peace is distinct from direct violence as an attribute of a humanly secure environment, but it is only one attribute.

None the less, given the relationship between sustainable development and human security and the United Nations’ pre-eminent role in promoting human security, it is important to clarify exactly what it is that we can expect of the world organization in relation to promoting security and development.
