A Twenty-First-Century Way Forward
This chapter uses Woodrow Wilson’s fourteenth point as a basis for proposing multistakeholder alliances to solve global issues that require multiple perspectives and collaboration between the private and public sectors. The author explains the meaning of the term multistakeholder alliance and then offers recent examples of alliances formed to tackle difficult international issues such as vaccination, AIDS, and energy efficiency. The chapter concludes with the assertion that contemporary global issues cannot be resolved without the collaboration of companies, foundations, organizations, and influential individuals.
