This blog strives to catalyse dialogue and inspire change. In the spirit of Dag Hammarskjöld it aims to generate new perspectives and ideas on global development and multilateral cooperation. The blog features writing from the Foundation’s own staff, as well as guest bloggers, and endeavors to be a space for those most affected by inequalities and injustice to also be heard.
