In September 2021, the United Nations Secretary-General released the 'Our Common Agenda' Report, which aimed to "report back before the end of the seventy-fifth session of the General Assembly with recommendations to advance our common agenda and to respond to current and future challenges". Over the course of February 2022, a series of 5 consultations were held at the General Assembly in order to receive feedback from concerned stakeholders (across member-states, civil-society actors and other bodies) with respect to various aspects of the agenda outlined in the OCA report.
IT for Change sent in a video statement - read by our researcher, Amay Korjan - that was presented at the third thematic consultation on the OCA report, dealing with “Frameworks for a peaceful world – promoting peace, international law and digital cooperation". The statement outlined the organization's critical response and key concerns with respect to the outlined agenda on digital cooperation, especially with respect to the future of multilateral engagement on this front.
