CIC - New York University Center on International Cooperation
The New York University Center on International Cooperation (CIC) creates the ideas, analysis and policies needed to transform international cooperation on leading global challenges, such as increasing peace and security, strengthening fragile states, securing strategic resources, and tackling climate change.
CIC are deeply engaged in international policy dialogue on peace, security and development issues, including in relation to the post-2015 framework. In September 2012, CIC launched a project to support the Co-Chairs of the High-level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda in deepening the evidence base on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and building a receptive audience among UN member states in New York. It maintains a close relationship with the UN, the World Bank, and has supported the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding.
CIC works extensively with a range of institutions in the Global South. This includes a regular dialogue between think tank representatives and officials from several emerging economies (India, Brazil, South Africa, and Turkey) and a select few traditional donors. Through its Managing Global Order Project with the Brookings Institution and Stanford University, CIC has deepened its engagement with the emerging economies on a range of global issues, from peacekeeping to climate change to global order – including a meeting of national security directors from emerging powers in Copenhagen with their European, US, and Canadian counterparts.
Saferworld and the New York University Center on International Cooperation (CIC) are collaborating on a two-year project focusing on rising powers and the post-2015 process. The purpose of the project is to conduct research and support dialogue on the inclusion of conflict and violence issues in the post-2015 development framework. This will involve policy consultations and dialogue events engaging a range of policy communities and actors, including rising powers and traditional donor countries, multilateral actors and other global stakeholders both at the country level and among decision makers in New York.
