Multilateral Leadership in Global Health Security

A conversation with 

Prime Minister Erna Solberg
Kingdom of Norway


Wilmot Godfrey James
Senior Research Scholar at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

Welcome and Introduction by: 
Lee C. Bollinger
President of Columbia University in the City of New York

As co-chair of the ACT-Acceleration Facilitation Council and upcoming member of the UN Security Council, Prime Minister Erna Solberg's unique leadership position allows her to magnify the much-needed multilateral response to the current global health crisis. Norway's initiative to establish the UN COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund equally considers the immediate financial necessities as well as long term action plans needed to ensure a lasting recovery, furthering the progress of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

This discussion will explore the importance of funding global health efforts, garnering multilateralism in recovery, and leveraging opportunities for a sustainable shift in society.

Columbia University students are invited to participate in a moderated question and answer session following the discussion.

Cosponsored by the Center on Global Economic Governance
