Event Summary
The relationship between the United Nations and its partners in the private sector and civil society involves accommodating diverse parties with competing values and priorities, and potentially contradictory notions of legitimacy. This session examines the challenges of legitimacy, focusing on key questions of the processes and politics of accountability, from the perspective of the UN's relations with various non-state actors. These include, but are not limited to, local groups that interact with UN field operations, partner groups that provide funding or operational expertise, activist NGOs that seek to influence the UN, and countless other groups and individuals with a stake in UN operations.

The seminar is part of the UNU Legitimacy Series, which provides a platform for critical discussions with academics and public intellectuals about issues of legitimacy as they arise in various aspects of the work of the United Nations.
