Why Philanthropic Foundations Need To Spend Money (& Quickly) | GZERO World

Why philanthropic foundations need to spend money (and quickly)

In today's world, where global development needs are high and seismic geopolitical events have turned back the clock on so much progress, UN Foundation President Elizabeth Cousens says its the perfect time for philanthropy to step up.

Indeed, there's a lot more that can be done, Cousens tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

And philanthropy, she explains, doesn't have to be about greenwashing or PR but rather a way of making things better in many places that have been through more than their fair share in recent years.

And last week we were in Davos, Switzerland, for the 53rd World Economic Forum.

Ukrainians & Russians Should Abide by Human Rights Law | Volker Türk | Global Stage | GZERO Media

Fighting crimes against humanity in a world of crisis

Volker Türk, the new UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, is surprisingly candid about one of his organization's most famous shortcomings.

The Security Council, which includes Russia as a permanent member, is "dysfunctional" on Ukraine. On the other hand, he adds, the General Assembly has seen a sort of revival in how much it's been able to help the country.

In a Global Stage delegate interview on the ground in Davos, Türk tells Ian Bremmer that believes it is critical that the Ukrainians, just as much as the Russians, abide by international human rights law. And he's been in close contact with the Ukrainian prosecutor general, who assures him he is investigating potential war crimes within his country's military.

Russia's tragic brutality and the humbling of the West

After two years, we returned to Davos, braving the Swiss mountain cold for the World Economic Forum's annual meeting.

The 2023 WEF is all about "polycrisis," which in WEF-speak means many crises all at once, which compound each other, like tangled knots. But how do you untangle those knots?

That's a question that the world's business and political elite is struggling with at a time when the globalization they adore is being questioned by the developing world.

We're in "polycrisis" (and it's not as fun as it sounds)

After a pandemic hiatus in 2021 and a weird summer edition last year, Davos is back in 2023.

How does the World Economic Forum describe all the problems we'll likely face this year? One word: polycrisis, Ian Bremmer explains on GZERO World.
