Citizens for Global Solutions (CGS) envisions a future in which nations work together to abolish war, protect rights and freedoms and solve the problems facing humanity that no nation can solve alone. Their vision requires effective democratic global institutions that will apply the rule of law while respecting the diversity and autonomy of national and local communities.
CGS has membership and chapters across the US which meet regularly with public officials in support of a more cooperative and multilateral foreign policy.
Citizens for Global Solutions directs projects in these areas:
U.S. Global Engagement
CGS advocates for foreign policy that makes the US stronger and safer through teamwork, cooperation and effective global institutions. The organization hopes to increase the multilateralism of the United States foreign policy.
Peace and Security
Collaborative approaches are the only way to prevent and resolve conflicts and establish effective peace operations. CGS promotes an empowered, efficient and accountable UN peacekeeping force to help maintain peace in post-conflict situations.
International Law and Justice
Citizens for Global Solutions hopes to strengthen the laws and institutions that protect human rights and help nations resolve disputes peacefully. CGS promotes U.S. cooperation with the International Criminal Court to prevent atrocities.
CGS proposes reforms that would make international decision-making more effective, transparent, accountable and democratic. The organization supports the creation of a UN democracy caucus, encouraging democratic nations to lead UN decision-making bodies.
Health and Environment
CGS supports global cooperative efforts to confront environmental and public health challenges. The organization would like the US to resume its leadership role in protecting the global environment.
