The President of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), Mogens Lykketoft, will hold a high-level thematic debate to examine how to strengthen the UN's role and coherence in the area of peace and security. The event is expected to identify synergies from three review processes related to peace and security taking place at the UN (peace operations review, peacebuilding activities review, and global study on women, peace and security). The event will also be informed by preparatory discussions, including workshops and meetings organized by Member States, regional and sub-regional organizations, civil society and the private sector. The debate is one of three high-level events that the President will convene during UNGA 70.
