Currently  there  is  an  increase  in  nationalist  movements  and  the  rise  of  anti-immigrant sentiments,  xenophobia  and  intolerance  in  many  parts  of  the  world.  These  trends  are impacting attitudes towards the United Nations and challenging the concept of Multilateralism upon  which  its  charter  is  based.  The  General  Assembly  decided  to  recognize  the  75th anniversary of the United Nations in 2020 as an important opportunity for governments to reaffirm their commitments to the UN Charter.  Multilateralism is especially relevant now as the world faces a global pandemic.

Psychology  can  contribute  to  understanding  the  challenges  to  Multilateralism  and  help facilitate international cooperation to deal with pandemics and other global challenges. The Psychology Day at the UN Program will consist of a panel of experts from cross-cultural, political and social psychology who will discuss psychological approaches to dealing with the challenges as well as recommendations on building bridges among and within nations.
