The 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly Opens at the UN Headquarters in NYC

The 72nd session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 72) opened at the UN Headquarters in New York City on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. The most significant part of it – the annual General Debate of the United Nations General Assembly that will take place September 19 – 25, 2017. It is a unique occasion for world leaders to gather at UN Headquarters to discuss global issues.

The theme for this year’s debate was chosen by President Miroslav Lajcak (President-elect of the 72nd General Assembly)  as “Focusing on People: Striving for Peace and a Decent Life for All on a Sustainable Planet.”

During the General Debate world leaders will address issues in five key areas: the threat to global peace and security posed by North Korea; deescalating the conflict in Syria; broadening multilateral counter terrorism efforts to defeat ISIS and other terrorist organizations; taking bold steps on UN reform; and bolstering support for humanitarian assistance to ongoing emergencies, in particular for refugees and the communities that host them.
