The Open Society Policy Center has joined the United Nations Foundation in urging world leaders to work together to resolve a crisis that could shut down the UN. Strong differences of opinion about the direction of reform and governance at the UN threaten to collide with a rapidly approaching spending cap. Unresolved, these differences could paralyze the UN – paralyze diplomacy, paralyze operations, and paralyze the reform process. Some UN operations could even be curtailed or shutdown. In June, UNF launched the “Don’t Shut Down the UN,” campaign, which includes an on-line petition urging world leaders to forge an agreement that will keep the United Nations fully funded and moving forward toward meaningful reform.
