Launch of the Journal Development and Dialogue on Shared Societies and the Post-2015 Development Agenda

Türk stressed that the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are an important achievement resulting from decades of the UN involvement in the conceptualization and financing of development and also highlighted the notion of “living together”, coined by the Council of Europe, as a key contribution to the concept of sustainable development. Enrique Iglesias emphasized the need to embrace the concept of Shared Societies as a new approach to Planetary Conviventia and BuenVivir. Also, Iglesias called upon renewing social pacts in order to make progress in the task of building a fair society and laying the foundations for a sustainable development. In addition, both President Türk and Jesús Gracia, Spanish State Secretary of International Cooperation, stressed the importance of contributing to the debate over the new sources of development finance and the role that the private sector can play in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
   
This event was convened on the occasion of the launch of the Development 57.1 'Shared Societies', a special issue of the quarterly journal of the Society for International Development (SID), produced in partnership with the Club de Madrid, that has been produced in partnership with the Club de Madrid.
 
Participants, including Arthur Muliro, Deputy Managing Director of SID and Associate Editor of the Journal, discussed the contribution of the concept of Shared Societies, developed by the Club de Madrid, to the debates on the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
 
In the context of challenges such as a growing social and economic inequality and the progressive erosion of the social foundations of many of our societies, the vision of Shared Societies, brings into the discussions a timely and valuable strategy to promote social cohesion for sustainable development and growth.
