UNGA Guide

In mid-September, the 76th session of the UN General Assembly will come together to discuss the future direction of international governance. Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, climate and refugee crises, and political instability, current systems of governance at the local, national, and international levels are being assessed and reexamined to address these wicked problems. The potential of data to enable more dynamic, evidence-based and legitimate governance approaches has been widely acknowledged. Yet, the insights generated from data are only as good as the questions they seek to answer.

For the last few months, The GovLab, the Asia Foundation, BRAC Institute of Governance & Development, and The Centre for Strategic and International Studies Indonesia have sought to source the questions that data could answer toward transforming the way different societies govern themselves. Following a prioritization effort among a large cohort of “bilinguals,” global experts in both data science and governance, we will be releasing the 10 curated questions for public voting during a side-event of the UN General Assembly.

Please join Transforming Governance through Data - an event hosted by the 100 Questions partners to reflect on the questions identified and how to operationalize them leveraging new and traditional datasets.
